About Human GatewayTM Entry Clones

Human Gateway entry clone

The human GatewayTM entry clones were constructed by cloning of PCR-amplified open reading frame (ORF) fragments from full-length human cDNA clones or other resource cDNAs and studied in the "NEDO Functional Analysis of Protein and Research Application Project" supported by the Japanese government. As of June 2010, about 43,000 human GatewayTM entry clones were deposited to NBRC by Japan Biological Informatics Consortium (JBIC) as a general deposit.

The results of this project using these human GatewayTM entry clones were published on Nature Methods and other journals. Furthermore, the detail information of these clones are available from H-Invitational Database (H-InvDB; and Human Gene and Protein Database (HGPD;

The DNA fragment in a GatewayTM entry clone can be moved into one or more destination vectors simultaneously by GatewayTM technology. For more information about GatewayTM technology, please visit the website of Thermo Fisher Scientific (

Ordering Human cDNA Clones

1. Clone search

Please search the clones of your interest and their name at Human Gene and Protein Database (HGPD). You can also refer a list of human GatewayTM Entry Clones at the top page of HGPD for clone name.

The clone name for human GatewayTMentry clones is expressed in a form of:
"FLJ + 5 digit number + 3 digit alphabetical letter + N or F"
(Example: FLJ11111AAAF, FLJ12121AAAN)
Since "AK + 6 digit number" or "A clone name without N/F at the end of the name" indicates Full-length human cDNA clones and/or Splicing-Variant Human cDNA clones, please check the names carefully to avoid mistakes befer order.
The letter "N" or "F" at the end of names represents:
"N"; N-type clones that have an intrinsic stop codon for the production of native or N-terminal fusion proteins.
"F"; F-type clones that do not have the stop codon for C-terminal fusion proteins.
