I have a pcr product with a start and stop codon....its inserted into a pCMV vector that has a signal sequence at the c terminal end...now if i express it will the expression stop at the stop codon in the gen or at the stop codon after the signal sequence.... I want the signal sequence to fuse with my protein.......
Pls help asap

Two stop codons

translation will stop at the first stop codon the ribosome encounters, so if your PCR product contains a stop codon at the end, translation will stop there and you will not get a fusion with your signal sequence in the vector.
