Depositor Comments

Tn5 derivative Tn5-1058 (in plasmid pRL1058) contains a p15A oriV, and its antibiotic-resistance determinants are driven by an Amaranthus hybridus ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase promoter (see pRL439 is this series of plasmids), providing large numbers of transposon mutants. The XbaI site near the L end of Tn5 is the sole unmethylated XbaI in the construct, allowing the placement of luciferases (e.g., Vibrio fischeri luxAB as in pRL1063a). An oriT for conjugal transfer is positioned between the L and R ends of the Tn.
