A new expression vector (pBB1) has been constructed for the regulated expression of genes in Escherichia coli. Based on the pUC plasmids, the pBB1 carries lacIts allele of the lac repressor gene. This makes it possible to control expression of cloned genes by shifting the temperature from 30 degrees C to 42 degrees C. Thus the vector combines advantages of the pUC plasmids with convenient regulation by temperature. Expression of a fragment of HIV-1 env gene was achieved with the help of this vector and shown by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and Western-blot analysis.
