Modifications to backboneCut KnpI, BamHI to remove Ptet-gusA; insertion of Pveg-sLucopt
Vector typeBacterial Expression, Luciferase, Synthetic Biology
Growth in Bacteria
Growth Strain(s)NEB Stable
Growth instructionsOccasional insertions of an IS element commonly found in E.coli cloning strains is observed; the Pveg promoter seems particularly prone to insertions. If problems are encountered, we recommend maintaining the plasmid in, and isolating it from, strains that are negative for this element. By PCR, MC1061 or derivative strains are negative. DH5a or derivatives should be avoided. IS-less cloning strains (such as MDS42) are recommended. Growth on 20ug/mL Cm on plate (E.coli), or 10 ug/mL Cm in liquid culture (E.coli). For C. difficile selection use Thiamphenicol at 15 ug/mL.

Please note that the individual components of this construct (that is, Pveg and sLucopt) are described in Oliveira Paiva AM et al (2016) ACS Synth Biol (DOI: 10.1021/acssynbio.6b00104). During the cloning a mutation occurred that removes the SacI site in between the Pveg and sLucopt genes. The 5' (KpnI) and 3' (BamHI) restriction sites remain.
