- Backbone size (bp) 3428
Vector typeBacterial Expression
Growth in Bacteria
Growth Strain(s)XL1 Blue
Growth instructionsGrow in LB supplemented with 30 µg/ml chloramphenicol. Due to toxicity associated with high expression from the dual lpp/lacUV5 promoter, this plasmid must be propagated in a lacIq strain (e.g.--XL-1 Blue).
Copy numberLow Copy
- Cloning method Restriction Enzyme
- 5′ sequencing primer lac promoter (Common Sequencing Primers)
Bacterial expression vector for the alpha-Gal4 hybrid protein (required for the B2H system). The tandem lpp/lacUV5 promoter which drives expression of the Gal11P fusion protein contains a lac operator and therefore these dual promoters can be repressed by lac repressor.
This plasmid is a very low copy number plasmid and therefore we recommend that maxipreps be performed from a 200 ml culture. A miniprep will not be sufficient.
