Expression vectors, like cloning vectors, are used for horizontal gene transmission. Cloning vectors are primarily used for replication – generating a large number of copies of the same plasmid. Expression vectors will contain all of the same basic elements present in a cloning vector and additionally a promoter sequence that recruits transcriptional machinery, and directs the host organism to transcribe an RNA template from the cloned gene product.
Choose at genomics-online between a variety of promoter sequences based upon gene cloned into the expression vector, the organism and cell type the gene to be expressed in and desired expression level.
