  • Modifications to backbone
    pAC6blamut was cut with EcoRI and PstI. The primers TM2301 and TM2302 (1 pM) were mixed, heated (95°C, 10 min), re-annealed (50°C, 10 min) to become double stranded with 4 bp overhangs and ligated into the vector. The vector was cut with EcoRI and PstI and ligated with the MCS from pSB1C3 cut with EcoRI and PstI. A PstI site in the E. coli ori was removed by cutting with BglII and religation of the 11 kb fragment.
