Most haloarchaeal shuttle vectors are derived from endogenous plasmids, such as pGRB1 [7], pHH1 [8], and pNRC100 [9] from Halobacterium salinarum or pHK2 [4,10], pHV2 [11, 12], and pHV1/4 [13] from Haloferax volcanii.
Stability and Maintenance of the Shuttle Vectors. To assess the structural stability of the vectors, we isolated pFJ1, pFJ4, and pFJ6 from J7-F transformants, back-transformed them into E.
Maintenance of the pFJ1, pFJ4, and pFJ6 shuttle vectors was evaluated by calculating the rate at which each plasmid was lost per generation during nonselective growth, as previously described [21].
