Depositor Comments

Bacterial strain: E.coli BL21(DE3)-RIL (Stratagene).

pRK793 overproduces the catalytic domain of tobacco etch virus (TEV) protease in the form of an MBP fusion protein that cleaves itself in vivo to yield a TEV protease catalytic domain with an N-terminal His-tag and a C-terminal polyarginine tag.
