Promoters: Promoter none
Construction: YEp353 (ATCC 37725)
Construct size (kb): 8.0
Features: insert detection: lacZ
marker(s): ampR, URA3
replicon: pMB1, 2 micron
YE-type (episomal) shuttle vector
The cleavage position in the reading frame for cloning sites is (where 3 = between triplets): EcoRI-2; SacI-3; KpnI-3; SmaI-2; BamHI-2; XbaI-2; SalI-2; PstI-3; SphI-3; HindIII-2. The SacI site is not unique.
Cloning into the EcoRI, SacI, KpnI SmaI, BamHI, or XbaI sites leads to a TAG stop codon within the downstream XbaI site of the multiple cloning region.
Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb): PstI--8.0; HindIII--8.0; SalI--8.0; EcoRI--8.0; BamHI--8.0.
One of 3 promoter-cloning, YE type shuttle vectors (ATCC 37731
- 37733) with URA3 selection in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, a beta-galactosidase reporter gene and multiple cloning sites differing in reading frame.
The sequence and reading frame of the multiple cloning sequence is: 5'GA ATT CGA GCT CGG TAC CCG GGG ATC CTC TAG AGT CGA CCT GCA GGC ATG CAA GCT TGC GAT CCC 3', from nucleotide 1 of the MCS through CCC for amino acid 8 of beta-galactosidase.
