cloning vector
Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb): BamHI--10.9; EcoRI--6.5, 2.4, 2.05; PstI--9.0, 1.8; PvuII--10.9.
Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb): BglII--7.8; EcoRI--7.8; HindIII--5.2, 2.5; EcoRI/HindIII--5.2, 2.5.
Supports introduction of kar1 delta 15 mutation into lys2 yeast strains by two step gene replacement. The karl delta 15 mutation supports transfer of YAC clones between yeast strains by Karl-mating (REF).
To integrate pHK9, linearize within the kar1 gene at the unique PvuII site. Cells that have lost the LYS2 marker through mitotic excision can be selected on alpha- aminoadipate.
