pBRα-β flap (831-1057)
PurposeExpression of alpha NTD fused via three alanines to E. coli RNAP subunit beta, aa 831-1057 (β-flap). Can be cut with Not1 and BamHI to replace β-flap with a moiety of interest.

Vector typeBacterial Expression
Growth in Bacteria
Growth Strain(s)NEB5alpha F'LacIQ
Growth instructionsWe recommend using a lacIQ strain, such as NEB5alpha F'LacIQ, in order to ensure that the expression of potentially toxic fusion proteins is kept repressed.
Gene/Insert namealpha NTD-Beta flap fusion
Alt namerpoA-rpoB fusion
- Promoter lpp/lacUV5 (tandem promoter)
- Cloning method Restriction Enzyme
- 5′ cloning site NotI (not destroyed)
- 3′ cloning site BamHI (not destroyed)
- 5′ sequencing primer pBRa_F (approx 150bp upstream of NotI site) 5’ gaacagcgtaccgacctggac 3’ (Common Sequencing Primers)
Note-When cloning into this plasmid, the 5' end of the insert must provide an extra nucleotide to maintain the reading frame. Additionally, a stop codon must be inserted 5' to the BamHI site. Please see supplemental document for more details.
This plasmid is used in conjuction with the other Ann Hochschild Bacterial 2-hybrid system plasmids (Addgene plasmids 53730, 53731, 53732, 53733, and 53734) and must be used in the reporter strain, FW102 OL2–62 (Addgene item 53735). Please see the associated article for links to all of these plasmids:
