Depositor Comments

The 3' coding sequence
for CRE-M contained in plasmid
p218 was PCR amplified.
The 812 bp amplification
product was digested with BamHI and MluI, gel purified and
ligated together with both the BamHI and MscI fragment from
p218 containing the 5' end of CRE-M and the MscI-MluI
fragment from pBS185 containing a polyA sequence.
