  • Vector backbone
  • Modifications to backbone
    pKD is derived from pKK223-3 (Pharmacia). This plasmid encodes a variant of the phosphoserine orthogonal translation system. Another plasmid encoding a protein of interest with TAG at the proper position is needed for recombinant phosphoprotein expression. See article and supplementary information for cloning information.

Depositor Comments

See supplementary information accompanying article for additional cloning information. We recommend introducing this plasmid into a recoded strain of E. coli (no genomic TAG codons) for high-efficiency phoshoprotein expression.
