BioBrick pET-24a(+)
(Plasmid #117802)


Item Catalog # Description Quantity Price (USD)
Plasmid 117802 Standard format: Plasmid sent in bacteria as agar stab 1 $75

This material is available to academics and nonprofits only.


  • Vector backbone
  • Backbone size (bp) 5018
  • Modifications to backbone
    Modifications to backbone: polylinker changed to contain the four standard BioBrick restriction sites EcoRI, XbaI, SpeI and PstI; the remaining sequence lacks these 4 BioBrick sites. The 5’-to-3’ annotation of the insert is BglII, BioBrick prefix (EcoRI, NotI, XbaI), T7 RNA polymerase promoter, lac operator, epsilon translation enhancer, Shine-Dalgarno sequence, NdeI/ATG start codon, minigene (including XhoI site and VSV in vitro transcription terminator), stop codon, 119-nucleotide Tphi transcription terminator, BioBrick suffix (SpeI, NotI, PstI) and BspEI (not unique).
