Depositor Comments

Please note: the depositing lab has determined that a particular IS element present in E. coli strains such as DH5alpha and its derivatives has a high propensity to insert into this plasmid. The depositing lab recommends isolating the plasmid DNA and transforming into a strain similar to MC1061.
