Depositor Comments

Grow at 32'C. Same as pGRG25 except for the MCS. See author's protocol for more information.

This plasmid is designed to insert DNA into the chromosome of Enterobacteria in a manner that doesn't require a drug resistance marker. This plasmid uses the site-specific recombination machinery of the bacterial transposon Tn7. The backbone of the plasmid is the easily curable temperature sensitive mutant of pSC101.
