Plasmid: pRS318


Plasmid Type
Cloning Method
One of a series of pBluescript-based centromere vectors (ATCC 77142 ATCC 77145, ATCC 77157 to ATCC 77158) differing in the yeast selectable marker gene. [1] pRSS56, constructed by ligating a PvuI fragment (bp 498-2412) of pBluescript KS+ to a PvuI fragment (bp 2850-730) of pBS(+), contains the KS MCS from pBluescript KS+ and the unique NdeI and AatII sites between bla and f1 origin of pBS(+). [1] YC-type centromere vector permitting visual detection of recombinants and production of ssDNA in E.coli. Contains promoters for in vitro RNA synthesis, priming sites useful for sequencing, and encodes the lacZ alpha (lacZ') peptide. [1] Useful in plasmid shuffle experiments. [2] The order of the major features in this plasmid is: LEU2 - CYH2 - f1 ori - T7 promoter - lacZ'/MCS - T3 promoter - pMB1 ori - bla - CEN6 - ARSH4. [2] Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb): HindIII--7.4; XbaI--7.4; PstI--7.4; BamHI--7.4. (ATCC staff) Medium is 1227 LB plus ampicillin. Hosts: E.coli HB101, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, E.coli, Saccharomyces cerevisiae YPH499, Saccharomyces cerevisiae YPH500, Saccharomyces cerevisiae YPH501. (Information source: VectorDB ( ).)
