  • Over 1,500 plasmids which can replicate in prokaryotes (e.g. Escherichia coli, Lactococcus lactis), yeasts (e.g. Saccharomyces cerevisiae) or animal cells (e.g. COS cells) are stored as pure DNA and as host/plasmid combinations at - 80C. They are mainly constructed for cloning and high-level expression of coding sequences that are derived from a variety of organisms.

    All of them are described in full molecular detail, whenever possible at DNA sequence level. Functional features, such as cloned genes, promoters, ribosome binding sites, transcription terminators and other items are displayed on a graphical, circular map, and described in an accompanying data sheet. The latter also contains detailed information on the construction of the plasmid, its application areas, required host strains and other useful features. A selection of recommended or required bacterial host strains is also offered. Some 10 unique cDNA libraries, from fungal to human origin, are also available. The cDNA libraries are oligo(dT) and/or random hexamer primed, and most often cloned in an oriented way in an expression cassette.
