A family of cloning vectors derived from plasmid pACYC184 and, therefore, compatible with pBR322 and its derivatives (especially the pUC family of vectors), is described. They all contain a multiple cloning site (MCS) and the lacZ alpha reporter gene for easy cloning. They have been grouped in three sets: (i) six of the vectors contain a chloramphenicol-resistance (CmR)-encoding gene and each a different MCS with 16 unique restriction sites overall; (ii) another six vectors contain a kanamycin-resistance (KmR)-encoding gene and the same six MCS; and (iii) two CmR vectors that contain the SP6 and T7 promoters flanking the MCS and lacZ alpha reporter gene of pUC18/19.
