Species:Escherichia coli
Strain designation:JM109(DE3)
Accession number: LMBP 2406
Depositor: This host strain was deposited by Prof. Dr R. Beyaert1 2. It was obtained from Dr J. Messing 3.
1 VIB-UGent Center for Inflammation Research, VIB, Ghent, Belgium
2 Department of Biomedical Molecular Biology, Ghent University, Ghent, Belgium
3 Waksman Institute, Rutgers, State University of New Jersey, Piscataway, USA
Containment level: This strain has been assigned the containment level Class 1 following the European Directive 2009/41/EC on the contained use of genetically modified organisms, and its updates (see also the Belgian risk group classification).
Medium: LB-Lennox
Selection marker: Nalidixic acid
Temperature: 37°C
Genotype: [F´ traD36 proAB laqIqZΔM15] endA1 recA1 gyrA96 thi hsdR17 relA1 supE44 Δ(lac-proAB) λ(DE3 [lacI lacUV5-T7 gene 1 ind1 sam7 nin5])
Phenotype: NalR rk- mk+
Properties: The strain contains DE3, a λ prophage carrying the T7 RNA polymerase gene under control of the lac UV5 promoter and lacIq. IPTG is required to induce expression of the T7 RNA polymerase. Protein expression from transforming plasmids containing a T7 promoter-driven expression system is repressed until IPTG induction of T7 RNA polymerase expression occurs.
Further information: There is a genome sequence of the parental JM109 strain available at Genbank (Accession number: NZ_RYWX00000000.1).

The nalidixic acid resistance has been experimentally verified by BCCM/GeneCorner.
