TEGX-SCblue

Cloning Vector for the Expression of scFv-Fc Fusion Molecules for Phage Display

Technical Description

The TGEX™-SCblue vector is designed for the mammalian expression of scFv-Fc fusions after transfer of scFv fragments from the PADL™ phagemid vector series.  TGEX™-SCblue vector enables rapid and convenient expression of scFv fragment isolated by phage display as dimeric scFv-Fc fusion with all the advantages conferred by the Fc fragment for detection using commercially available secondary antibodies. Transfer of the scFv inserts are done seamlessly through a common double-SfiI (Fig. 1). Proper recombinant clones can be isolated using a blue/white colony screening.

 

Figure 1. scFv Phage Display to scFv-Fc Expression. Expression of free scFv from multiple phage clones is not an easy task in bacteria and binding is often weak because of the monovalency of scFv. Using TGEX-SCblue scFv fragments can be easily transferred to a convenient mammalian transient expression system as scFv-Fc fusion (Valadon (2006), Yoon (2012)). With yields in the 10 to 100 mg/L range, just a few ml of culture is enough to validate your antibodies in any assay using simple secondary antibodies.
