Growth in Bacteria

  • Bacterial Resistance(s)
  • Growth Temperature
  • Growth Strain(s)
  • Growth instructions
    Plasmid isolation from standard DH5alpha results in low yield. The plasmid may need to first be retransformed into BL21 cells to obtain normal DNA yields. Requires extra growth time.

    • egl-13 NLS (C terminal on insert)

Cloning Information

Resource Information

Depositor Comments

To generate the unique SpeI site, a short, 37 bp, linker was inserted into an existing NdeI site. This linker seems to have been inserted 2 or more times, creating a short repeat region that we have been unable to sequence across. Sequencing with the M13 reverse primer will fail.

This plasmid is provided in EPI400 bacteria which may need to be induced to obtain a high copy number. Please refer to this protocol: for more information.
