16) A gene is put into pRSET using the BamHI and PstI sites of the MCS. The inserted fragment contains only the coding region of the gene (no stop codons), and is in frame with the vector coding sequence that flanks it. If the insert is 1233 nucleotides long, how long is the coding region (ORF) of the mRNA transcribed from the T7 promoter?
