Cloned DNA: Ampicillin resistance gene (amp); signal sequence
Promoter: Escherichia coli β-lactamase promoter (amp)
Phage λ major leftward promoter (λ PL)
binding site:
Ribosome binding site (RBS) of the Escherichia coli ampicillin resistance gene (amp)
Terminator: -
Selection marker: Ampicillin (amp)
Replicon: Escherichia coli plasmid pMB1 origin
Host range: Escherichia coli; use strains with a cI function, cIts for PL controlled expression
Parental clone: pPLc2820BS
Further information: This plasmid contains the β-lactamase signal sequence, preceded by its own ribosome binding site, under control of both the constitutive amp promoter and the thermo-inducible λ PL promoter.
pPLc2820BA is useful to study the effects of both temperature and synthesis level on membrane translocation of genes fused to the amp signal protein.
ApaI and HgiJII can be used for the expression of proteins that are correctly fused with the amp signal protein via removal of the 3' sticky ends.
AvaI, HgiCI, NarI, and SmaI can be used for the expression of proteins that are fused close the amp signal protein.
AvaI, HgiCI, and SmaI sites are not unique.
The amp promoter is not controllable.
The HindIII site cannot be used for the expression of fused proteins, because it is located behind an in-phase termination codon.
Other name of the plasmid is pPLc28-20ß279A.
