  • Vector backbone
  • Vector type
    Bacterial Expression, Synthetic Biology

Growth in Bacteria

  • Bacterial Resistance(s)
    Ampicillin, 50 μg/mL
  • Growth Temperature
  • Growth Strain(s)
    E811 (P2 lysogen)
  • Growth instructions
    For propagation, please grow this plasmid in the original strain (E811) In that strain, the strong promoter pE will be repressed, thus avoiding possible toxicity and accumulation of unwanted mutations in the plasmid. Use 50ug/ml ampicillin (100ug/ml may inhibit growth)
