pCDF and pRSF Vectors
The pCDF and pRSF vectors are designed specifically to minimize the number of extraneous amino acids encoded when expressing amino-terminal His•Tag® fusion proteins. These vectors are available as 1) uncut plasmids with an extensive multiple cloning site (MCS) for restriction enzyme cloning methods, or 2) as linearized vectors prepared for ligation-independent cloning (LIC), or 3) as uncut Duet™ plasmids for restriction enzyme cloning of two independent ORFs.
- pCDF vectors carry the CloDF13 replicon (1, 2), lacI gene and streptomycin/spectinomycin resistance gene (aadA).
- pRSF vectors carry the RSF1030 replicon (3, 4), lacI gene and kanamycin resistance gene.
