pET Expression Systems and pET
pET Expression Systems and pET Expression Systems plus Competent Cells provide core reagents needed for target gene cloning and expression.

Components: pET Expression Systems
Components for pET Expression Systems are similar for all systems unless otherwise stated with the specific pET Expression System description. pET Expression Systems include:
• 10 µg pET vector DNA (for each indicated plasmid)
• 0.2 ml BL21 Glycerol Stock
• 0.2 ml BL21(DE3) Glycerol Stock
• 0.2 ml BL21(DE3)pLysS Glycerol Stock
• 0.2 ml Induction Control Glycerol Stock

Components: pET Expression Systems plus Competent Cells
pET Expression Systems plus Competent Cells contain all of the components of the specific pET Expression System, as well as the following additional components, unless otherwise stated with the specific pET Expression System description:
• 0.2 ml NovaBlue Competent Cells
• 0.2 ml BL21(DE3) Competent Cells
• 0.2 ml BL21(DE3)pLysS Competent Cells
• 2 × 0.2 ml SOC Medium
• 10 µl Test Plasmid

These components are sufficient for up to 10 transformations in each host.

Purification and Detection Reagents
Purification and detection reagents are available separately. For complete product descriptions and ordering information, refer to the Protein Purification and Antibodies, Conjugates & Detection Tools chapters.

pET Expression System 11
The pET Expression System 11 contains 10 µg each of the four versions of pET-11 (pET-11a–d). The pET-11a-d vectors carry an N-terminal T7•Tag® sequence and BamH I cloning site. These vectors are the precursors to many pET family vectors; the pET-21a-d(+) series corresponds to pET-11a-d but incorporates several additional features. Note that the sequence is numbered by the pBR322 convention, so the T7 expression region is reversed on the vector map, TB042VM. The pET-3, 9, and 11 vector series are original, basic pET plasmids constructed by Studier and colleagues (Studier 1990) and are the precursors of the subsequent pET vectors. These vectors offer a single BamH I cloning site in three reading frames for producing proteins fused with a non-cleavable Nterminal T7•Tag® epitope. Unfused proteins can be produced by using the Nde I cloning site in the "a", "b", and "c" versions, or the Nco I site in the "d" version. The pET-17b vector carries a multiple cloning site in oneframe.
