Permits and Restrictions

View Permits

Preparation
Before opening the vial, centrifuge at 6,000 x g for 30 seconds. Add 30 µL of Molecular Grade Water and incubate the vial at 4°C overnight to dissolve the DNA. Each vial contains 2-3 µg plasmid DNA (measured by PicoGreen® dsDNA quantitation assay).
Components
Synthetic activator:
pENTR_L1L2_LitR-VP64 (ATCC SB-1098)

Synthetic promoter:
pENTR_L4R1_LitR -pCYC1MIN (ATCC SB-1059)
Application A plasmid pair used to construct a gene expression system via a TetR homolog-based activation system
Biosafety Level 1

Biosafety classification is based on U.S. Public Health Service Guidelines, it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that their facilities comply with biosafety regulations for their own country.

Comments
The synthetic activator is a fusion of the TetR homolog LitR and a VP64 activation domain.
Product Format purified plasmid DNA (2 to 3 µg/vial)
Storage Conditions 4°C or colder
