Size (kb): 5.3000001907348630
Vector: pAU21 (plasmid)
Construct size (kb): 5.300000190734863
Features: marker(s): tetR, URA3
replicon: pMB1, ars
Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb): EcoRI--5.2; HindIII--2.6 (doublet); PstI--5.2.
Plasmid linearized with PstI can be used to introduce cDNA libraries constructed in pcD or pcD2 vectors into Schizosaccharomyces pombe, resulting in the formation, by homologous recombination, of concatamers maintained as episomal DNA.
Contains the ars sequence from Schizosaccharomyces pombe and the URA3 gene from Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Insertions at the BamHI or SalI sites inactivate tetracycline resistance.
Shares pBR322 sequences from the PvuII site to the ScaI site with pcD.
