Hi netters,
there is a vector-system based on restriction activity against 5mC-
containing DNA (Noyer-Weidner and Reiners-Schramm, Gene, 66 (1988) 269-278)
They use rglB-nuclease in combination with cloning sites in a ts-Methylase.
In this paper they also metion rglA nuclease cutting CC*GG, whereas rglB
cuts at GGC*C and C*C*GG.
ButoeBut I have never heard about obtaining commercially purified rglA or rglB.

Hope I could help you
