This material is available to academics and nonprofits only.
Item Catalog # Description Quantity Price (USD)
Plasmid 163760 Standard format: Plasmid sent in bacteria as agar stab 1 $85


  • Vector backbone
  • Backbone size w/o insert (bp) 7400
  • Total vector size (bp) 8500
  • Vector type
    Yeast Expression
  • Selectable markers

Growth in Bacteria

  • Bacterial Resistance(s)
    Ampicillin, 100 μg/mL
  • Growth Temperature
  • Growth Strain(s)
  • Growth instructions
    Yeast strains should be grown without galactose for the transformation as well as in precultures for experiments. Expression of b2delta-DHFR after induction with galactose is proteotoxic and will result in growth arrest.
  • Copy number
    High Copy


  • Gene/Insert name
  • Alt name
  • Species
    M. musculus (mouse), S. cerevisiae (budding yeast)
  • Insert Size (bp)
  • Mutation
    Amino acids 1-167 of S.c. Cytochrome b2 (Cyb2) fused to mouse DHFR. The stop-transfer signal (transmembrane domain) of cytochrome b2 were deleted (19 amino acids) so that the protein is targeted to the mitochondrial matrix.
  • Entrez Gene
    Dhfr (a.k.a. 8430436I03Rik)
  • Promoter GAL1
