This is still a possibility, I would recheck to determine this is not the case.

Second,  why overexpress each of the small fragments in pUC19, if the two 
products have compatiable sequences why not use a PCR step (overlap extension 
method) to make the complete DNA product for example.  I am assuming here that 
the two fragments constitute some larger gene made of individual fragments 
that you have synthesized or modified chemically or enzymatically.

DNA product 1


DNA product 2

These two in PCR or possible a Klenow reaction following denaturation and 
reannealing could yield

DNA product 3 (1 + 2)


If you do not understand what I mean ask and I can explain in more detail and 
give you several references for such techniques.  Of course if the 3' end of 
DNA 1 and the 5' of DNA II are not complementary then it will never work.

Just a thought.

Good Luck and let us know how things work out.
