New and versatile cloning vectors with kanamycin-resistance marker

Gene. 1987;56(2-3):309-12. doi: 10.1016/0378-1119(87)90149-1.


Described here is a pair of small multi-copy kanamycin-resistance plasmids, containing the pUC lacZ alpha-complementation peptide and the pUC18 and pUC19 multiple cloning site. These plasmids and their derivatives allow simple and rapid transfer of inserts from one replicon to another without the necessity of purifying the insert from vector.
