Misc.Comments : YI-type shuttle integrative vector targeting human Alu sequences in YAC libraries derived from somatic cell hybrids. [1] Constructed by inserting a blunt-ended 1.2 kb fragment containing S. cerevisiae HIS3 into the blunted MscI within the Alu sequence of BLUR8. [1] Digestion with BamHI removes the plasmid sequences from the Alu ends for targeting integration. [1] Transformation into pools from a YAC library derived from a human-mouse somatic cell hybrid, and selection for His+, resulted in an approximate 50-fold enrichment for Alu-containing YACs. [1] Larger YACs were preferentially selected. Some YACs demonstrated loss of Alu-containing restriction fragments suggesting internal deletions resulting when the vector targeted two Alu sequences in the YAC. [1] Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb): BamHI--3.0, 1.6; EcoRI--4.6; PstI--3.3, 1.3. (ATCC staff) The order of the major features in this plasmid is: bla - BamHI - Alu - HIS3 - Alu - BamHI. (personal communication) Medium is 1227 LB plus ampicillin.
