Cloned DNA: -
Promoter: Phage λ major leftward promoter (λ PL)
binding site:
Ribosome binding site (RBS); synthetic sequence
Terminator: Phage fd terminator
Selection marker: Chloramphenicol (cam)
Replicon: Escherichia coli plasmid pMB1 origin
Phage f1 origin
Host range: Escherichia coli; use strains with a cI function, cIts for PL controlled expression
Parental clone: pMc5-βg14
Further information: This phasmid was designed for site-specific mutagenesis.
pMc514 can be used for direct expression screening after a mutagenesis treatment; recloning is not necessary.
The phasmid provides resistance to chloramphenicol, but is sensitive to ampicillin.
pMc514 contains the replication origin of the single-stranded DNA phage f1, so that it can be rapidly switched between the plasmid and the phage mode (ssDNA) of replication. The latter requires infection with a helper phage, e.g. M13KO7.
The AccI, PstI, SalI and XbaI expression sites are not unique.
The BsePI site in front of the λ PL promoter is still present.
After mutagenesis, use mutS and λ lysogen strains for primary transformation; for segregation of possible mutants: sup(-) and λ lysogen strains.
