Hi out there,
we were just discussing this dam(n) - story (i myself once got stuck with a
dam-sensitive enzyme BglI once) when a fellow worker in the lab mentioned the 
He's overcome that prob. by using competent JM110 cells (avail. from 
Stratagene). They transform nicely and the plasmid-DNA isolated from these 
recombinants is cut happily with BclI.
Great news to me, I should have known this 'couple 'years before, when I tried
to make GM33 competent !!! Fortunately I found a different enzyme at that


PS: None of us has any relation with STRATAGENE.
