A new, high-efficiency, DNA-cloning vector pJ1-8 was derived in two steps from the chimeric plasmid pD7 consisting of RSF 0885(ampr) andHaemophilus influenzae chromosomal DNA. pJl-8 has only oneEcoRI site and a molecular weight of only 2.5 × 106. No detectableampr transformation was obtained with pJl-8 DNA. However,ampr transformation increases markedly ifHaemophilus influenzae chromosomal DNA segments are spliced into it, providing a very facile assay for detecting inserts.
