Depositor Comments

The plasmid is high copy in E. coli, but low copy in mycobacteria.

Cloning was done via assembly PCR, sot he XbaI-HindIII fragment comprises the promoter-riboswitch. The insert is 3361bp including the promoter. There are mismatches between Addgene's quality control sequence and the depositor sequence, but they are not known to affect plasmid function.
