EMD Millipore Novagen BLR (DE3) pLysS Competent Cells
Manufacturer: Millipore Sigma 699563
DescriptionBLR is a recA- derivative of BL21 that improves plasmid monomer yields and may help stabilize target plasmids containing repetitive sequences or whose products may cause the loss of the DE3 prophage (1, 2). DE3 indicates that the host is a lysogen of λDE3, and therefore carries a chromosomal copy of the T7 RNA polymerase gene under control of the lacUV5 promoter. Such strains are suitable for production of protein from target genes cloned in pET vectors by induction with IPTG. pLysS strains express T7 lysozyme, which further suppresses basal expression of T7 RNA polymerase prior to induction, thus stabilizing pET recombinants encoding target proteins that affect cell growth and viability.
