This plasmid is an empty vector. Your gene can be inserted via LIC cloning.
8-series vectors are induced with L-arabinose for tighter control of expression. Glucose can be added to the medium to further inhibit leaky expression. The plasmid can be expressed in any E. coli line that lacks proteases.
8T adds a TEV-cleavable His6-Trx (thioredoxin) tag to the N-terminus of your protein. Trx can enhance the solubility of your protein of interest.
To clone into this vector, add LIC v1 tags to the 5' end of your PCR primers.
Forward - 5'TACTTCCAATCCAATGCA3'
Reverse - 5'TTATCCACTTCCAATGTTATTA3'
Linearize the plasmid with SspI and gel purify.
When digesting the DNA with T4 polymerase, use dCTP for insert and dGTP for vector.
