Tn1721 derivatives for transposon mutagenesis, restriction mapping and nucleotide sequence analysis.

Abstract

New derivatives of the tetracycline-resistance transposon Tn1721 that carry resistances to chloramphenicol, tetracycline, kanamycin and streptomycin are described. These elements are provided on various plasmid vehicles and as chromosomal insertions to extend the range of targets for Tn mutagenesis. Single EcoRI sites at the ends of these transposons proved most useful for physical mapping, for the generation of new EcoRI sites in cloning experiments, for end-labelling and for sequencing of DNA adjacent to an insertion.
