Resource Information

  • A portion of this plasmid was derived from a plasmid made by
    The metallothionein (MT) gene was amplified from pET-3d-MT (a gift from the Winge laboratory, University of Utah), which contains the MT gene within the pET-3d vector (Novagen, Madison, WI).

Depositor Comments

The metallothionein (MT) gene was amplified with the forward primer (5'-CTCGGGATCGAGGGAAGGATTTCAAGA TATACCATGGACCCC-3'), which codes for the MBP linker region containing an XmnI and NcoI site fused in frame to the MT gene, and the reverse primer (5'-GACT CTAGAGGATCCTAGGCACAGCACGTG-3' ), which contains the MT gene stop codon and a subsequent BamHI site. Both the PCR product and pMAL-c2x vector were digested with XmnI and BamHI and were later ligated together to generate the final plasmid. In addition to this plasmid Addgene offers versions with 2 copies (32102), 3 copies (32115) and 4 copies (32100) of MT
