Title Overproduction of Escherichia coli replication proteins by the use of runaway-replication plasmids.
Journal J. Bacteriol.
Abstract A derivative of the runaway-replication plasmid was constructed. This plasmid, pSY343, has the gene for kanamycin resistance and single sites for EcoRI, BamHI, HindIII, KpnI, and XhoI that can be used as cloning sites without inactivating the kanamycin resistance gene or the replication genes. Three replication genes of Escherichia coli were cloned on the plasmid. The activity of dnaA, dnaZ, and ssb gene products were 200-, 90-, and 60-fold greater, respectively, in the cells containing these plasmids than in normal cells.
