The chloramphenicol resistant pUC vectors pHSG396 and pHSG398 contain the chloramphenicol resistance gene, the pMB1-derived origin of replication (ori), and the beta-galactosidase coding gene lacZ. These chloramphenicol resistant pUC vectors also contain a pUC18-derived multiple cloning site (MCS) within the lacZ gene, enabling recombinant clones to be verified through culture plates containing IPTG and X-Gal. High target gene expression is enabled by the presence of the lac promoter on both the pHSG396 and pHSG398 vectors.
Both pHSG 396 and pHSG 398 can be analyzed via dideoxy DNA sequencing using an M13 primer. Large recombinant chloramphenicol resistant pUC vectors may be analyzed using Takara's Deletion Kit for Kilo-Sequencing (Cat. #6030).
