Please note that the plasmid pET16B.Pfu contains an Ampicillin resistance marker, and the BL21 bacterial strain contains a plasmid, pSJS1240, that confers spectinomycin resistance and allows for expression of genes with rare codons.

Addgene provides this plasmid in the DH5alpha bacterial strain. For expression, please transform BL21(DE3)Star bacterial cells with this plasmid and include pSJS1240 (Addgene plasmid number 12234), if necessary for expression of rare codons.

Addgene's sequencing results found Y218H, Q462R, F533L, K559I and V683A mutations in the Pfu sequence when compared to GenBank entry D12983. These mutations were not intentional, but plasmid functions as described in the associated publication listed below.

Addgene has sequenced a portion of this plasmid for verification. Full plasmid sequence is available only if provided by the depositing laboratory.
