vector for other uses
vector permitting visual detection of activity in colonies
Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb): EcoRI--7.2; HindIII--3.9, 3.3; EcoRI/HindIII--3.9, 2.7, 0.6; NotI--3.6 (doublet); BamHI--7.0, 0.2.
Reporter plasmid permitting visual detection of beta-galactosidase activity by histochemical staining.
Designed primarily as an enhancer trap vector. May be used as a reference plasmid in transfection experiments or to monitor the effect of trans-acting factors.
The lacZ gene may be excised by NotI and replaced with alternative sequences.
The order of the major features in this plasmid is: pUC19 - EcoRI - adenovirus 2 major late promoter/tripartite leader/splice signal - NotI - lacZ - NotI - SV40 late polyadenylation signal - XbaI - HindIII - pUC19.
Media ATCC® Medium 1945: Terrific broth (ATCC medium 1743) with 200 mcg/ml ampicillin
