Biosafety classification is based on U.S. Public Health Service Guidelines, it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that their facilities comply with biosafety regulations for their own country.

Shipping Information Distributed: freeze-dried
Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb): EcoRI--5.1, 2.7; BamHI--4.4, 3.4; SalI--7.8.
Insert contains the following restriction sites (approximate kb from the 5' end): BamHI--2.44; BspHI--1.82, 2.68; EcoRI--1.69; HindIII--0.95, 1.4, 1.62, 3.38, 3.91, 5.08; NcoI--0.04, 0.24, 0.47; NdeI--3.71, 4.73; PstI--1.90, 3.11; PvuII--0.18, 1.62, 3.41.
First protoarchetypal version of SV40 to be cloned and characterized. It has numerous nucleotide differences from SV40 reference strain 776.
This is a viable clone (viral DNA, when excised from the plasmid using EcoRI, will form virus particles if the DNA is transfected into CV-1 cells or other permissive cells).
Full-length genome of SV40 strain K661-1 (SV40-K661-1) was cloned into pUC-19 at the EcoRI site.
