Plasgene has developed proprietary methods for the selective removal or curing of DNA plasmids from bacteria. These methods, based on the company’s pCURE™ technology, overcome many of the difficulties which are associated with the displacement of plasmids from bacteria.
- For elimination of F-like plasmids from enteric bacteria.
- No host stress during displacement.
- Kit contains easy to follow protocol with the necessary components for plasmid elimination and diagnosis of removal.
To purchase pCURE™2, or for any enquiries, please contact Prof. Chris Thomas.
This kit uses the plasmid, pCURE2, which interferes with the replication and population maintenance functions of F-like plasmids, in Escherichia coli and other bacteria of the Enterobacteriaceae. By interfering with both F-plasmid replication and post-segregational killing systems, the kit offers a way of eliminating these plasmids without stressing the host bacterium.
