The REP-X derivatives are derived from the REP/RIP series above. The original REP/RIP vectors contain an ATG at the 5' end of the polylinker; the X-series removes it and adds a XhoI site. Note that you must supply an ATG on your clone if using the X-series.
Important: the polylinker in the 40-X and 80-X series is not quite the same as the polylinker in the 3X and 4X series. See the map.

ars1 CaMV with tet operator, repressed by adh-tet repressor. In the pSLF series, the repressor is provided by integrated pSLF104.

In pMLtetON, the repressor is co-expressed on the same plasmid. Use of the analogue anhydrotetracycline at 6uM leads to induction within 3 hrs (max 12hrs). Martin Luetzelberger and Erler et al. (2006; Yeast 23: 813–823)

Martin tells us expression is in the REP41-81 range.

These plasmids allow expression of proteins fused to two halves of YFP, allowing for bimolecular fluoresence complementation in vivo. One putative partner needs to be fused to VN173, and one to VC155.
