Depositor Comments

The Plac promoter from pGFP-Mut3.1 (Clonetech), along with its associated ribosome binding sequence, was amplified via PCR. Engineered 59 BamHI and 39 NdeI restriction sites were used to sub-clone the resulting fragment into a BamHI/NdeI (New England Biolabs) double digested pSAM_Bt vector upstream of the himar1C9 transposase gene. The kanamycin resistance gene from pKD4 was amplified and ligated using the restriction sites MfeI and XbaI, replacing the erythromycin resistance gene ermG in pSAM_Bt. The resulting transposon mutagenesis vector, pSAM-Ec, was stored and propagated in the pir+ E. coli strain EcS17.
