Backbone

  • Vector backbone
    pMal-c
  • Backbone manufacturer
    NEB
  • Total vector size (bp) 6442
  • Vector type
    Bacterial Expression

Growth in Bacteria

  • Bacterial Resistance(s)
    Ampicillin
  • Growth Temperature
    37°C
  • Growth Strain(s)
    XL-2 Blue
  • Growth instructions
    Cannot be grown in DH5 alpha. Has to be grown in a strain that requires IPTG induction of the promoter, as E. coli don't like it if it's constitutively expressed. TB1 strain is also good.
  • Copy number
    Unknown

Gene/Insert

  • Gene/Insert name
    MS2
  • Species
    Synthetic
  • Mutation
    double mutation (V75Q and A81G) that prevents oligomerization
  • Promoter tac
  • Tag / Fusion Protein
    • MBP (N terminal on insert)

Cloning Information

  • Cloning method Restriction Enzyme
  • 5′ cloning site StuI (destroyed during cloning)
  • 3′ cloning site HindIII (not destroyed)
  • 5′ sequencing primer M13pUC-Rev or MBP-F
  • 3′ sequencing primer M13pUC-Fwd
