Abstract : The aim of this work the construction of a bacterial plasmid carrying the genes for a small blue copper protein and for a small enzyme in close proximity, separated by a third genetic element, the loss of which may be easily detected, as an indicator of deletions in the system. Although the first stage objective - cloning of a gene for a blue copper protein - has not been reached to-date, the final report exemplifies the work done on the problem, and the techniques that have been developed. Keywords: Metalloproteins.
