CC   This YAC cloning vector has a conditional centromere for copy number
CC   amplification of yeast artificial chromosomes, T3 and T7 promoters,
CC   restriction sites for inverse PCR rescue, and a replication origin and
CC   markers functional in mammalian cells.
CC   Restriction sites available for inverse PCR rescue include MboI
CC   (flanking EcoRI by 107 and 77 bp), RsaI (flanking EcoRI by 297 and 352
CC   bp), and TaqI (flanking EcoRI by 508 and 869 bp).
CC   Induced transcription from a GAL1 promoter inactivates the centromere
CC   and increases copy number.  Additional amplification results from
CC   growth in media containing methotrexate, sulfanilamide and thymidine.
CC   This YAC cloning vector has bacterial replication origins and
CC   selectable markers on both arms to permit rescue of end subclones from
CC   each end in E.coli.
CC   Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb):
CC   BamHI--18.0,1.8; EcoRI--20.0; HindIII--5.4, 4.5, 3.3, 2.7, 1.7, 1.4.
