Size (kb): 5.6599998474121090
Vector: pK19mobsacB (plasmid)
Construction: pK19, pSUP102 (RP4 mob), sacB
Construct size (kb): 5.659999847412109
Features: insert detection: lacZ'
marker(s): sacB (sucrose sensitivity)
produces protein levansucrase
vector containing primer sites useful for sequencing
vector permitting visual detection of recombinants
Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb): EcoRI--5.6; HindIII--5.6; PstI--5.6.
After mobilization, the plasmid can be maintained by integration into the host chromosome via homologous recombination.
Excision of the intervening plasmid sequence by a double cross-over event can be faciliated by selection on medium containing 10 percent sucrose.
The sacB gene has been modified to eliminate the HindIII and EcoRI sites in the coding region.
Differs from pK18mobsacB (ATCC 87097)
only in the orientation of the polylinker.
