Thiamine-repressible expression vectors pREP and pRIP for fission yeast

Gene. 1993 Jan 15;123(1):127-30. doi: 10.1016/0378-1119(93)90551-d.


The promoter and polyadenylation signal of the thiamine-repressible gene nmt1 of Schizosaccharomyces pombe have been used to construct the pREP extrachromosomally replicating plasmids and the pRIP integrative expression plasmids. These plasmids permit thiamine-mediated control of transcription to be applied to cloned genes.
