High copy BioBrick assembly plasmid

pSB1A3-1 is a high copy number plasmid carrying ampicillin resistance.

The replication origin is a pUC19-derived pMB1 (copy number of 100-300 per cell).

pSB1A3 has terminators bracketing its MCS which are designed to prevent transcription from *inside* the MCS from reading out into the vector. The efficiency of these terminators is known to be < 100%. Ideally we would construct a future set of terminators for bracketing a MCS that were 100% efficient in terminating both into and out of the MCS region.


Usage and Biology

  • This plasmid is not giving the predicted EcoRI/PstI digest. From the description at the registry site, there should be an EcoR1 at bp119 and a PstI at 156. I see a band that is btw 500 and 600 bps.
  • Also, as a general comment, the dsDNA that is listed when sequence information is requested is impossible to work with in most DNA analyzer programs (e.g. NEBcutter) since these programs expect top strand only. It would be IDEAL if the dsDNA could be listed as ss on demand.
    • If you click the "get sequence as shown" link in the "sequence and features" section of a part's page, you can get a ssDNA text file (smile)! [Drew]
