Cloning Information

Resource Information

  • A portion of this plasmid was derived from a plasmid made by
    This plasmid was constructed by Rachael M. Goldstone from the pYUB1049 vector. pYUB1049 was donated by Mi-Sun Koo and William R. Jacobs from the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York, USA.

Depositor Comments

This is a Gateway destination vector. It requires a ccdB survival strain of E. coli for propagation of the plasmid, but once a gene of interest has been cloned in (via the LR reaction) it will grow in standard E. coli strains (eg. DH5alpha, BL21).

This is a shuttle vector, designed for expression of the inserted gene in Mycobacterium smegmatis as well as allowing cloning using E. coli.
