Dear Kenneth,

I am still a little unsure of your set-up but you should be able to
find several vectors with Eag I (A MUCH less expensive iso.) and Xba I
sites in them. Remember Eag I is the core of the Not I site. The over
hang is compatible so you can cut the vector with Not I if there is
a problem there.

Again some information about the vector and such would help.
Good Luck,
