DescriptionA suspension of E. coli K12 KS1000 which has been grown in M63 or M9 minimal glucose medium and brought to 50% glycerol. This strain is deficient in the Prc protease, a periplasmic protease (formerly known as Tsp, tail-specific protease). The Prc protease can degrade cytoplasmically expressed proteins when the cells are lysed to make a crude extract, and presumably it can degrade proteins expressed in the periplasm as well.

Properties and Usage
The following is a list of Safety Data Sheet (SDS) that apply to this product to help you use it safely.
- KS1000 is EcoK r+m+, so plasmids have to be modified (i.e., come from an m+ strain such as TB1, JM83, JM107, etc.) in order to get transformants.
