Replicon: Broad-host-range plasmid RSF1010 origin of transfer (oriT)
Broad-host-range plasmid RSF1010 vegetative replication origin; IncQ
Host range: Escherichia coli
Gram-negative bacterial strains
Parental clone: pKT210; pKT007
Further information: The plasmid was created by ligating a HindIII fragment of pKT007 into the HindIII opened pK210 vector. pKT007 was obtained by transposing the Tn10 fragment of R6 onto pML21.
pKT212 is a broad-host-range plasmid. It can be used in all gram-negative bacterial species that support replication of the natural plasmid RSF1010.
The plasmid contains the structural streptomycin resistance genes (strA + strB), lacking a functional promoter, and can be used as a promoter probe vector.
Introduce the plasmid by electroporation, or through conjugation, using plasmid RK2/RP4 transfer functions (provided in trans by RK2/RP4, RK2/RP4-derived vectors, other replicons carrying RK2/RP4 transfer functions (e.g. pRK2073) or strains expressing the tra genes of RK2/RP4).
The nucleotide sequence of this plasmid is based on the information in Bagdasarian et al. (1983).
Since the nucleotide sequence could not be completely traced back, there is uncertainty as to the cutting frequency of the restriction enzymes, except for the sites that were analysed in the authenticity test.
The nucleotide sequence of RSF1010 corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number M28829.1.
EMBL Accession number: M28829.1, view at EMBL, GenBank, DDBJ
Latest sequence update: 18/03/2013
Authenticity test: Restriction enzyme pattern analysed at GeneCorner: EcoRV, HindIII, NcoI and NotI.

As compared to the compiled sequence file, the expected 6445 bp NcoI fragment has a size of around 5300.
