pIJ773 is a plasmid used during PCR targeting for mutagenesis experiments in actinomycetes. The plasmid is used as a template to amplify a disruption cassette by PCR, producing a 1382 bp fragment.
- Apramycin resistance (aac(3)IV)
- oriT from RP4 plasmid (RK2)
- Flippase recognition target (FRT) sites
