  • Vector backbone
  • Backbone size w/o insert (bp) 5446
  • Vector type
    Mammalian Expression
  • Selectable markers
    Neomycin (select with G418)

Growth in Bacteria

  • Bacterial Resistance(s)
    Ampicillin, 100 μg/mL
  • Growth Temperature
  • Growth Strain(s)
  • Copy number
    Low Copy


  • Gene/Insert name
  • Species
    H. sapiens (human)
  • Mutation
    The HA-Ubiquitin insert is from the UBB gene. The reason for the small size is because it contains a single ubiquitin coding sequence(full length UBB has three repeating ubiquitin coding sequences).
  • GenBank ID
  • Entrez Gene
    UBB (a.k.a. HEL-S-50)
  • Tag / Fusion Protein
    • HA (N terminal on insert)

Cloning Information
