Vector backbonepXP1 and pGL3
Backbone manufacturerNordeen, 1988 and Promega
Modifications to backboneA single C to A mutation 564 bp upstream of the origin of replication at plasmid position 4660 was made to create pXPM. A HindIII/XbaI fragment of pGL3 (Promega) containing the improved luciferase gene Luc1 (Sherf et al.,1994) was cloned into into HindIII/XbaI-cut pXPM

Depositor states "A spontaneous single C to A mutation was identified 564 bp upstream of the origin of replication at plasmid position 4660 in pXPM which generated high copy replication. A HindIII/XbaI fragment of pGL3 (Promega) containing the improved luciferase gene Luc+ (Sherf et al.,1994) was cloned into into HindIII/XbaI-cut pXPM."
JM109 are the cells used by the author for pXPG and its derivatives.
