  • Vector backbone
  • Backbone manufacturer
  • Backbone size (bp) 5700
  • Modifications to backbone
    DNA encoding presumptive N-terminal signal peptide deleted.
  • Vector type
    Bacterial Expression
  • Tag / Fusion Protein
    • T. litoralis MBP (N terminal on backbone)

Growth in Bacteria

  • Bacterial Resistance(s)
    Chloramphenicol and Ampicillin
  • Growth Temperature
  • Growth Strain(s)
    ccdB Survival
  • 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.
