INVαF´ E. coliallow stable replication of high-copy number plasmids. The genotype of INVαF´ offers the following features:

• Blue/white screening of recombinant clones (lacZΔM15)
• Reduction of homologous recombination of transformed plasmids (recA)
• Increased quality of plasmid DNA preparations (endA1)
• Production and rescue of single-strand DNA from vectors carrying the f1 origin of replication (F´)
