Basic Vector Information

The Lemo21(DE3) strain contains pLemo, a pACYC184 derivative carrying the lysY gene. Accordingly, chloramphenicol (30 μg/ml) is required to maintain pLemo. In most cases, the T7 promoter-based expression vector will be compatible with pLemo.

Plasmid Resuspension Protocol:

1. Centrifuge at 5,000×g for 5 min.

2. Carefully open the tube and add 20 μl of sterile water to dissolve the DNA.

3. Close the tube and incubate for 10 minutes at room temperature.

4. Briefly vortex the tube and then do a quick spin to concentrate the liquid at the bottom. Speed is less than 5000×g.

5.Store the plasmid at -20 ℃.
