CC Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb):
CC EcoRI--4.2; HindIII--4.2; PstI--3.1, 1.1. (ATCC staff)
CC The order of the major features of the plasmid is:pSC101 rep > - BamHI
CC - < 3' lacZ - T7 promoter > - EcoRI/MCS(pGEM-3Z)/HindIII - < SP6
CC promoter - 5' lacZ - BamHI - tnpR > - ampR > - par - pSC101 ori.
CC (personal communication)
CC Low copy number vector to express transcripts in vivo from the T7
CC promoter and to minimize toxic gene effects. Maintained at 1-5 copies
CC per cell. At this level, the effect of uninduced expression of T7 RNA
CC polymerase from the UV5 promoter resulting in transcripts of
CC potentially toxic inserts is minimized. T7 RNA polymerase can also be
CC provided by infection of F' hosts with M13mGP1-2 (ATCC 40303).
