Size (kb): 5.4400000572204590
Vector: pTacNeo2.1 (plasmid)
Promoters: Promoter tac
Construction: pBR322, TAC promoter, lacZ, modified APH(3')-I
Construct size (kb): 5.440000057220459
Features: marker(s): ampR
vector permitting construction of fusion proteins
Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb): PvuII--4.0, 1.5; PstI--3.1, 2.4; BamHI--5.5; SmaI--5.5; XbaI--5.5.
This is an expression vector capable of producing a B-gal: insert fusion protein. It can also be used as a probe.
The start codon of the modified APH(3')-I is followed by the eleventh codon (serine) of APH(3')-I. Codons 2-10 have been deleted.
The upstream translation of LacZ is terminated before APH(3')-I.
The vector contains pBR322 (EcoRI-SphI), a TAC promoter, the first 8 amino-terminal codons of beta-galactosidase, and a gene encoding a modified aminoglycoside phosphotransferase (3')-I (APH(3')-I).
Sequences from the TAA stop codon of APH(3')-I to the immediate downstream PvuII site encode a portion of Tn601. Sequences from the PvuII site to the PstI site are derived from Tn5.
