Growth in Bacteria

  • Bacterial Resistance(s)
  • Growth Temperature
  • Growth Strain(s)
  • Growth instructions
    Because it carries a gene (ccdB ) that encodes a lethal DNA gyrase poison, this vector must be propogated in an E. coli gyrA mutant such as DB3 or DB5 (Invitrogen), which is immune to the action of CcdB.
  • Copy number
    Low Copy

Depositor Comments

A Gateway destination vector for the production of recombinant proteins as fusions to the C-terminus of E. coli maltose-binding protein. Presumptive N-terminal signal peptide deleted.
