  • Vector backbone
  • Backbone manufacturer
  • Total vector size (bp) 4486
  • Modifications to backbone
    pTacI promoter was removed and replaced by the bacteriophage Lambda promoter OR2-OR1-Pr, with one mutation made in this promoter. Untranslated region was removed and relplaced by UTR1, a powerful UTR (see reference related to this plasmid) Luc gene (firefly Luciferase) was removed and replaced by deGFP. A transcriptional terminator was added, called T500 (see reference related to this plasmid).
