Dictionary » P » Phagemid



(Science: molecular biology) A phage whose genome contains a plasmid that can be excised by co-infection of the host with a helper phage.

Useful as vectors for library production, as the library can be amplified and screened as phage, but the inserts of selected plaques can readily be prepared as plasmids without subcloning.

Example of a commercial phagemid: _Zap, from which pBluescript can be excised with helper phage.

Question about phage library

... commercially or constructed in house. The construction of a phage display library is accomplished by inserting DNA fragments into phage or phagemid genomes which proteins are expressed on the phage coat. This creates a direct physical link between the DNA sequences and their encoding proteins. ...

T7 Expression System

... I just have a question and I hope that it's okay to ask here. I currently have a simple expression system setup within E.Coli K12 strains, using a phagemid with Tet-R/Amp-R genes, and my gene of interest inserted downstream of the T7 promoter. I plan to introduce a heat-inducible plasmid containing ...

Fab library constructing-ligation/transformation problem

... constructing work. I did PCR and got light chain (LC) products. There is a LC stuffer in the vector so I digested and gel purified the digested phagemid vector and the LC stuffer as a control. I tried to ligate the digested LC or LC stuffer with the vector. To test, I transformed the ligation ...

ssDNA made by M13K07

Hi, has anyone here done the experiments about made ssDNA by M13K07? I have done this experiment recently,but I couldnot get the ssDNA of my phagemid. Could anyone tell me the reasons? Many thanks!

Re: Plasmid question

pBCSK, a phagemid has the T7 promotor in the MCS. I am uploading its map here. Would this alter your response? pBC_SK_plus.jpg
