Vector backbonepBluescript SK+
- Backbone size w/o insert (bp) 2958
- Total vector size (bp) 8380
Vector typeWorm Expression, CRISPR
Growth in Bacteria
Bacterial Resistance(s)Ampicillin, 100 μg/mL
Growth instructionsPlasmid isolation from standard DH5alpha results in low yield. We isolate this plasmid from BL21 cells, which results in normal yields.
Copy numberHigh Copy
Insert Size (bp)4254
- Promoter eef-1A.1 (eft-3)
/ Fusion Proteins
- 3xFLAG (N terminal on insert)
- SV40 NLS (N terminal on insert)
- egl-13 NLS (C terminal on insert)
- Cloning method Unknown
- 5′ sequencing primer M13F
- 3′ sequencing primer M13R (Common Sequencing Primers)

To generate the unique SpeI site, a short, 37 bp, linker was inserted into an existing NdeI site. This linker seems to have been inserted 2 or more times, creating a short repeat region that we have been unable to sequence across. Sequencing with the M13 reverse primer will fail.
