RT   "Optimized vectors and selection for transformation of Neurospora
RT   crassa and Aspergillus nidulans to bleomycin and phleomycin
RT   resistance";
RL   Gene 93:157-162(1990).
CC   That expression was improved by modifying the 17 bp before the
CC   initiation codon in pAB366 to match the sequence of the am gene.
CC   Shuttle vector conferring bleomycin and phleomycin resistance.
CC   Expression of ble (bleomycin resistance) is regulated by the promoter
CC   and terminator regions of the am gene (amination, glutamate
CC   dehydrogenase) from N. crassa.
CC   The am::ble fusion cassette can be removed by digestion with either
CC   HindIII, SphI, XbaI or BamHI or any combination of them.
CC   The order of the major features in this plasmid is:pUC18 - MCS
CC   (HindIII to BamHI) - am promoter - ble - XbaI - am 3' region - EcoRI
CC   - MCS (HindIII to EcoRI) - pUC18.
CC   Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb):
CC   HindIII--2.7, 1.4; KpnI--4.1; SmaI--3.1, 1.0. (ATCC staff)
CC   A (GT)n repeat. (personal communication)
CC   Medium is 1227 LB plus ampicillin.
