A 1.7-kb cryptic plasmid was isolated fromZymomonasanaerobia and used to construct a shuttle vector inserting useful parts of pUC9, pBR322, and pRK2501.Escherichiacoli was employed to clone the new plasmid designated pSR12. The 7.7-kb plasmid pSR12 reisolated from the host cells could transform competent cells ofZ.anaerobia at 2×10−7 frequency. This shuttle vector contains two antibiotic resistance markers, Kanr and Tetr, as well as restriction sites such as EcoRI, PstI, and XhoI, suitable for DNA recombinations.
