Deletion of sti on Streptomyces plasmid pIJ101, made its derivative pHZ1358 an efficient vector for gene disruption and replacement. Here, we further optimized pHZ1358 by the construction of a derivative plasmid pJTU1278, in which a cassette carrying multiple cloning sites and a lacZ selection marker was introduced for convenient plasmid construction in E. coli. Furthermore, we also deleted oriT region of the pJTU1278, generated a vector (pJTU1289) that can be used specifically for PCR-targeting. The efficient usage of these vectors was demonstrated by the deletion of a gene involved in avermectin biosynthetic in S. avermitilis.
