Well, thanks for the help guys, but neither of these is what I'm really
The map in the Hartl paper shows only the unique sites around the
cloning area - functionally useless for anything but building a library.
The sequence in GenBank, alas, is not the complete vector. It's only
the 50% or so that remains after circularization in a Cre+ host. That's
great is you're interested in carving up the finished P1's, but not
quite the whole cigar if you're trying to manipulate the vector in a
The part outside the loxP's that's missing from the GenBank sequence is
what I'm really after now. This was originally made with a plasmid
called pBS69 which has apparently, along with it's sequence, fallen off
the face of the earth. If anybody has a lead on where I can get that
info or a contact number or e-mail for Nat Sternberg I'd be overjoyed.
(DuPont is clueless about finding him and all I have is a snail-mail
address which I'll use as a last resort.)
Again, thanks for the help. I'll throw the complete map and other info
onto our web pages if I ever dig it out.
