Perhaps publications by V.N.Iyer of Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada may
be of help (particularly some that come to mind by Selvaraj of Iyer's lab,
back sometime around 1982 to 1987). There were vectors that were part of 
lineages of vectors that come to mind, so you may have to look at their
plasmid diagrams carefully. Sorry I don't have more specific details on
hand, but this was five years ago since I was last "intimate" with these
particular vectors (I modified some myself but they wouldn't be of use to
you due to too few remaining rest. endo. cleavage sites).
