You can use any strain that has a marker that is dependent on
supF for expression. I have used MC1061/P3. MC1061/P3 contains
an episome (p3) that has ampicillin-amber and tetracycline-amber
genes. It is available from Invitrogen.
If you cannot find an alternative source for piVX, let me know and
I can send you an aliquot.
