Species:Escherichia coli
Strain designation:MG1655 seqA-mEOS3.2
Accession number: LMBP 9777
Depositor: Prof. Dr J. Michiels1. It was constructed by T. Swings1
1 Centre of Microbial and Plant Genetics, Department of Microbial and Molecular Systems, KU Leuven, Leuven, Belgium
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-Miller
Selection marker: kanamycin (50 µg/ml)
Temperature: 37°C
Genotype: F- λ- seqA-mEOS3.2:km(R) (Source: Guyer et al., 1981 and Mika et al., 2015)
Phenotype: KanR
Properties: This strain can be used to study the subcellular localization of the E. coli DNA binding protein SeqA.
Further information: The native seqA gene was fused at its 3' end to the fluorescent protein gene mEOS3.2, separated with a linker (ASPPPGRSR) and followed by a kanamycin resistance marker. The entire cassette was integrated in the chromosome.

There is a genome sequence of the parental MG1655 strain available at Genbank (Accession number: U00096.3).
