  • Modifications to backbone
    pLostfoX was created by cloning 995 bp of V. fischeri ES114 DNA containing the tfoXVF ORF into pEVS79; pLostfoX-Kan was created by replacing the chloramphenicol resistance of pLostfoX with a kanamycin resistance via a SphI restriction site which has been introduced with PCR using Primers containing SphI sites.
