The sequence for pcDNA2.1 is at Invitrogens web site at:


2.1 is slightly different from 2.0, in that it does not have the SP6
sequence (due to some legal problems with Promega), and may have one or
two more restriction sites.  Invitrogen can give you exact details on how
it is different (it is minor), but they will not give you the sequence to
2.0 for the aformentioned reasons.  You might want to find someone who has
the manual, it is a fairly common vector (sorry, I don't).  Good luck
