What is a GST tag? Short fast 1 minute answer!

GST amino acid sequence used as a method for fuse with our target protein for better purification and separation in the biotechnology laboratories.

The GST tag. GST is a 211 amino acid protein (26 kDa) whose DNA sequence is frequently integrated into expression vectors for production of recombinant proteins. The result of expression from this vector is a GST-tagged fusion protein in which the functional GST protein (26 kDa) is fused to the N-terminus of the recombinant protein.
