CC   The component of a multiplex gene regulatory system containing the
CC   target transponding promoter sequence & reporter gene.  The
CC   transactivating gene product is encoded in pNFT (ATCC 68668).
CC   Constructed by inserting the ClaI/SalI (end filled) fragment of pPO2
CC   into the HincII site of the vector.  Transcription from the SP6
CC   promoter gives sense RNA. (personal communication)
CC   The 2.1 kb SmaI/SalI fragment contains the promoter fragment linked to
CC   coding sequences for chloramphenicol acetyltransferase (CAT) along
CC   with SV40 splice and polyadenylation signals.
CC   Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb):
CC   EcoRI/HindIII--2.9, 1.6, 0.4, 0.3; PvuI/PvuII--1.8, 1.7, 1.5;
CC   SmaI/SalI--5.0; SalI--uncut; SmaI--5.0. (ATCC staff)
CC   Medium is 1227 LB plus ampicillin.
