Depositor Comments

This plasmid is an empty vector. Your gene can be inserted with a LIC cloning protocol. All 2-series vectors work as single-expression vectors, as well as transfer vectors for our polycistronic system. For more details, see the MacroLab vector cloning manual.

The LIC cloning site is flanked by 5 pairs of restriction sites, so that your gene can easily be subcloned into our polycistronic destination vectors (2D, 2E, or 2Z).

2Tc-T has a TEV-cleavable C-terminal thioredoxin (Trx) tag to enhance solubility, as well as a His6 tag to ease purification.

To clone into this vector, add LIC v3 tags to the 5' end of your PCR primers.



Linearize the plasmid with HpaI and gel purify.

When digesting the DNA with T4 polymerase, use dGTP for insert and dCTP for vector.
