Replicon: Escherichia coli plasmid pMB1 origin
Host range: Escherichia coli; use strains with a cI function, cIts for PL controlled expression
Parental clone: pLacDN3HIFNG; pPLcZCY1
Further information: pLacDN5HIFNG is derived from pLacDN3HIFNG by inserting the SacI-PstI fragment from pPLcZCY1 into the unique SacI and unique PstI sites. Due to this construction, the lacA gene is deleted and only part of the lacY is maintained.
pLacDN5HIFNG contains an in-phase fusion protein: human interferon γ/β-galactosidase.
hIFNγ is a mutated variant, containing a unique SalI site and an extra HhaI site at position 390 of the coding region. The chromosomal lacZ gene must be inactivated for detection of β-galactosidase activity of the hIFNG-lacZ fusion protein.
The natural EcoRI site near the end of lacZ was removed by mutation.
The incomplete lacY gene is still functional, but activity is lower than that of the wild type lacY. So, β-galactosidase activity measurement by X-Gal coloration is much slower.
Other name of the plasmid is pDN5G.
