Parental clone: pGreenII
Further information: The plasmid was constructed by deleting a 1.3 kb Bal31 fragment from pGreenII (version 0179), removing much of the IS5 element and extended into the ColE1 origin of replication.
The plasmid is derived from pGreenII which is widely used to produce plant transformants via a process that involves propagation in E. coli.
pGreenII-based constructs can be unstable in E. coli as a consequence of them hampering cell division and promoting cell death.
pViridis does not cause these effects, thereby removing the selective pressure for mutation. pViridis should help to ensure the integrity of genes destined for study in plants, while they are propagated and manipulated in E. coli.
The nucleotide sequence of the T-DNA region of the pGreenII (version 0179) vector corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number EU048866.1.
