Modifications to backbonepDG1662blamut was cut with PstI to remove one XbaI site and the spcR outside of the integrative part. The 6 kb fragment was religated. The remaining PstI site was mutated via site-directed mutagenesis. To insert the MCS, the vector was cut with EcoRI. The MCS was amplified by PCR from pSB1C3, cut with EcoRI and BsaI (EcoRI-compatible overhang) and ligated into the vector. The remaining NgoMIV sites were removed by subsequent site-directed mutagenesis.

This is an “empty” vector that lacks promoters and reporter genes. The integrative part contains the flanking homology regions, a resistance cassette for selection in B. subtilis and the multiple cloning site (MCS), containing an rfp-cassette flanked by the restriction sites EcoRI, NotI, XbaI (upstream) and SpeI, NotI and PstI (downstream). They allow cloning in BioBrick standard with selection for white colonies as a result of the removal of the rfp-insert, which – if still present – leads to formation of red colonies in E. coli.
