A portion of this plasmid was derived from a plasmid made byThe 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).

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
These plasmids were created by your colleagues. Please acknowledge the Principal Investigator, cite the article in which the plasmids were described, and include Addgene in the Materials and Methods of your future publications.
