RT   "Plasmid vectors with multiple cloning sites and cat-reporter gene
RT   for promoter cloning and analysis in animal cells";
RL   Gene 65:315-318(1988).
CC   Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb):
CC   PvuII--3.0, 1.5; HincII--3.0, 1.5; EcoRI--4.25, 0.3. (ATCC staff)
CC   The polylinker is in opposite orientation in pGCAT-A (ATCC 37640) and
CC   pGCAT-C (ATCC 37641).
CC   The sequence at the junction of the multiple cloning site and CAT is
CC   GAATTCGAGC and at the junction of SV40 and SP6 is GGATCAGCTT.
CC   (personal communication)
CC   BamHI/HindIII fragment of pSB1 (CAT) was cloned into the HindIII site
CC   of pGEM-4. 2 hrs after ligation began the remaining BamHI and HindIII
CC   sites were filled in. Contains SV40 polyadenylation site and donor and
CC   acceptor sites of SV40 small-t intron.
CC   A plasmid shuttle vector for investigating promoter and/or enhancer
CC   elements. Has a polylinker upstream of reporter CAT gene, SP6 and T7
CC   promoters for in vitro RNA synthesis and low basal CAT expression in
CC   eukaryotic cells.
CC   Medium is 1227 LB plus ampicillin.
