Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb): BamHI--31.0, 15.5, 6.0; EcoRI--25.0 (doublet); SalI--27.0, 13.5, 9.4; XhoI--27.0, 13.0, 9.2.
Vector for high-efficiency directional cloning. Clones can be converted to plasmids by recircularization after a NotI digest.
Charon BS(-) (ATCC 77446) and Charon BS(+) (ATCC 77447) differ in the orientation of the M13 origin of replication.
