Depositor Comments

This TEV protease expression vector is intended to be used for controlled intracellular processing of fusion proteins (TEV protease substrates) in E. coli. Expression of the TEV protease gene on pRK603 will be constitutive unless the host strain produces Tet repressor. Regulated expression can be achieved in DH5alphaPro or BL21Pro cells (Clontech).
