expression vector
lambda vector allowing conversion to plasmid
shuttle vector
vector for constructing cDNA libraries
Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb): EcoRI--19, 25.
The plasmid insert can be released by homologous recombination between the 2 LTRs after growth at low temperature in Escherichia coli RRI(pRK248), ATCC 47036.
A cell line suitable for transfection by released plasmid is Wgd5, ATCC CRL 1817.
Allows expression of cloned cDNA in mammalian cells; can be used for library transduction.
Contains Mo-MLV LTR for transcription of cDNA and neo; ori of SV40 and pBR322.
