NotesThe map and sequence are approximations of the vector pieced together from various descriptions. The Cbs regions are functional and the NotI site in the 3' NTS is good for insertion. Otherwise, if absolute sequence is needed, the region of interest should be sequenced. Base numbers of various features are approximate.
