Depositor Comments

This plasmid is designed to be used in mobilizing other plasmids, and is easily curable from recipient cells because of the sacB gene. Depositor states that growth on the respective antibiotic is sufficient to confirm plasmid integrity.

Depositor states that users can select for the chromosome with nalidixic acid.
