What is the F1 Ori?

The replicon is comprised of the origin of replication (ori) and all of its control elements. The ori is the place where DNA replication begins, enabling a plasmid to reproduce itself as it must to survive within cells (Addgene). 

F1 is a phage-derived ori that allows for the replication and packaging of ssDNA into phage particles. Plasmids with phage-derived ori's are referred to as phagemids. The origin of DNA replication of bacteriophage f1 functions as a signal, not only for initiation of viral strand synthesis but also for its termination (GP Dotto et.al, 1984).
