NGS: 5026-gc-jun2020.fasta

Cloned DNA: Escherichia coli lac Z gene (lacZ); fragment, incl. α part
Promoter: Escherichia coli lac operon promoter
binding site:
Ribosome binding site (RBS) of the Escherichia coli lac Z gene (lacZ)
Terminator: -
Selection marker: Ampicillin (amp)
Replicon: Escherichia coli plasmid pMB1 origin
Host range: Escherichia coli; use strains expressing the lacZ ω fragment (lacZΔM15) for screening
Parental clone: pBR322
Further information: This plasmid was designed as an insert detection vector using α-complementation.
pUC19 is suitable for the expression of fused proteins using the lac promoter and the lacZα part.
pUC19 has the same polylinker as pUC18, but inverted.
pUC19 has no PstI site in the ampicillin resistance gene.
When cloning a fragment downstream from the lac promoter it may be advisable to use lacI(q) strains in order to prevent fortuitous expression of a possibly noxious polypeptide.
The nucleotide sequence of this plasmid corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number M77789.1, starting at another nucleotide position and complemented.
