- Name Michael Bouchard
- Institute Drexel University
- Tool name: pFLAG-HBx vector
- Alternate names: nonstructural protein X, protein X, peptide X, pX
- Tool type: Vector
- Tool sub-type: pcDNA3.1
- Description: This vector can be used to express hepatitis B virus HBx protein in a variety of primary and cancer cells. The addition of the FLAG-epitope tag allows for detection in western and immunofluorescent cell-based studies and provides better detection ability than can currently be achieved with commercially available anti-HBx antibodies.
- Research area: Cancer; Virology
- Bacterial resistance: Ampicillin
- Selectable markers: Neomycin
