Parental clone: pLT10T3; pMC1403; pLT10Bgal
Further information: This plasmid was constructed by inserting the XbaI/SacI fragment from pLT10Bgal, containing the ribosome binding site of the phage T7 gene 10 and part of the E. coli lacZ coding sequence, and the SacI/SgrAI fragment from pMC1403, containing the remaining part of the lacZ coding sequence in which the EcoRI site was removed, between the XbaI and EagI sites of the pLT10T3 vector. The SgrAI and EagI sites were filled in with Klenow DNA polymerase.
This is a useful phasmid for LacZ expression in E. coli under control of the strong and efficiently regulatable λ PL or T7 promoter. Transcriptional read-through from these promoters is minimized by the presence of a duplicated T7 transcription terminator sequence for the T7 RNA polymerase and a duplicated fd transcription terminator sequence for the E. coli RNA polymerase. Opposed to the pET-vectors, read-through transcription from other plasmid promoters is minimized by the clockwise orientation of the PL and T7 promoters relative to the anticlockwise orientation of the replication origin.
For T7 driven expression use a strain containing a controllable T7 RNA polymerase gene, as well as a cI function: preferably a pT7POL plasmid (Mertens et al., Biotechnology 13 (1995), 175-179) or e.g. BL21(DE3)[pcI857]. Proceed as follows: first transform auxiliary plasmid, make competent cells again and then transform the expression plasmid.
The nucleotide sequence of this plasmid corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number LT727347.1.
