Depositor Comments

For maintenance of vector, any standard E.coli is OK, but to make plasmid preps, the plasmid must be propagated in EPI300 or similar strain that enables the arabinose-inducible copy control system. Induction of gene expression is with acetamide in Mycobacterium, but this doesnt work in E.coli. Some level of control over expression in E.coli can be gained via controlling the copy number of the plasmid with arabinose. See published paper for more details on construction and use of pMycoFos. Has unique EcoRI, PacI, NheI, SwaI, BamHI sites for cloning
