Depositor Comments

This plasmid is an empty vector. Your gene can be inserted with a SLIC cloning protocol.

Prescission is a highly specific protease that cleaves LEVLFQ/GP. It is generally more active than TEV protease, and many users have found that when their protein inhibits TEV cleavage, switching to a prescission vector has proved worthwhile.

To clone into this vector, add SLIC tags to the 5' end of your PCR primers.



Linearize the plasmid with SspI and XhoI, then gel purify. There is a 1650 bp stuffer sequence that will be visible on a gel.

When digesting the DNA with T4 polymerase, use no nucleotides for either your insert or the linearized vector.
