YC-type (centromeric) shuttle vector
vector permitting RNA synthesis in vitro
vector permitting expression of small structured RNAs

Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb): EcoRI--6.55; BamHI--6.55; HindIII--4.7, 1.7.
Cloned inserts can be transcribed from the SUP4 tRNA gene intragenic promoter to produce structured pre-tRNA leaders fused to RNA corresponding to inserted sequences.
One of a series of shuttle vectors (ATCC 87167
- 87182) designed for stable expression of small structured RNAs in yeast. The vectors differ in promoter/terminator cassettes, selectable markers, replicons, and copy number.
Constructed by insertion of a promoter/terminator cassette into the multiple cloning site of the shuttle vector pRS314.
