Two versatile eukaryotic expression vectors have been developed which permit the production of an epitope-tagged cDNA insert by transient transfection in mammalian cells or by in vitro transcription-translation. The first vector, pCATCH, can be used to clone cDNA inserts in three different frames via eight unique restriction sites in a multiple cloning site (MCS) located downstream from both the FLAG epitope and the specific heart muscle kinase phosphorylation site, conferring the possibility of in vitro radiolabelling. A specific protease cleavage site enables the removal of the FLAG epitope, simplifying affinity purification of recombinant CATCH proteins. pCATCH possesses stop codons in al..
