CC   The order of the major features in this plasmid is: SalI - SV40
CC   polyadenylation trimer - XhoI/MCS/HindIII - beta-globin - PstI - SphI
CC   - ApaI - ampR/pGEM-7Zf(+). [1]
CC   Contains a trimer cassette of the SV40 major late polyadenylation
CC   signal to block background readthrough expression of the reporter
CC   gene. [1]
CC   A promoter/enhancer-cloning shuttle vector using human beta-globin as
CC   the reporter gene. Primarily useful for analysis of gene expression at
CC   the RNA level. [1]
CC   The ApaI site can be used for cloning enhancer elements. [1]
CC   Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb):
CC   PstI--3.8, 2.2; SphI--3.8, 2.2; HindIII--6.0; XhoI--6.0;
CC   BamHI--5.5, 0.55. (ATCC staff)
CC   Medium is 1227 LB plus ampicillin.
