Thermus thermophilus Disruption plasmid

  Disruption (ja)   Disruption (en)   Data Sheet   List of Genes   Expression Plasmid

Thermus thermophilus HB8 Disruption plasmids were constructed by "Whole-Cell Project of a Model Organism, Thermus thermophilus HB8" ( and deposited by Dr. Seiki Kuramitsu, SR System Biology Research Group, RIKEN Harima Institute; Individual clones are available.

The gene disruptant of T. thermophils HB8 can be easily prepared by adding this plasmid into the culture medium. The target gene in this plasmid was replaced by the thermostable kanamycine resistant gene from Staphylococcus aureus. The length of the homologous region outside of the target gene is about 500 bp (only 10 bp of the target geneare left in both sides) .
