Shipping Information Distributed: freeze-dried
Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb): SstI--5.6, 2.35; HindIII--4.9, 3.0; EcoRI--4.4, 3.45, 0.5; BamHI--3.0, 2.6, 1.5, 0.8.
Digestion of the plasmid with BamHI yields a 3.0 kb fragment from the vector and fragments of 2.6, 0.8, and 1.5 kb from the insert. The 2.6 and 1.5 kb fragments contain fewer than 100 bp from the vector.
The insert contains the following restriction sites (nt position according to the published sequence): BamHI--2541, 3346; HindIII--2720.
Contains the complete coding sequence and 3' untranslated region and part of the 5' untranslated region.
