Stratagene has a pretty good reputation in most of its products.  But
this is not always true.  Today I found one "big" typo mistake in its
commonly used vector, pBluescript KS(+), in the Stratagene catalog: a 2bp
mismatch (CG-CG) within the DraII and ApaI sites (763-764) in the polylinker
region (page 310, 1997-1998 catalog).  After contacting the company,
it turns out to be a mistake in the lower strand. The right sequence should
be GC instead of CG.  Hopefully this information is useful for you sometimes.
