Depositor Comments

Bacterial co-expression vectors to facilitate the production of substantial amounts of recombinant multiprotein complexes for biochemical, biophysical, and structural studies. pOKD4 (kanamycin-resistant) and pOKD5 (ampicillin-resistant) are derivatives of pACYC177 cloning and pET26b expression vectors. As a result, pOKD4 and pOKD5 are T7-based expression plasmids containing the p15A origin of replication. This feature permits either pOKD4 or pOKD5 to co-exist in the same bacterial cell with most Escherichia coli expression vectors including the popular pET expression vectors.

Full sequence is approximated. See article for more information.
