If you go back to one of the early papers (Nature or Nature
Biotechnology) he has a plasmid with parB inserted in the polylinker of
I think pGEM. He will let you have that plasmid and it is easily PCRable
etc. I got it many moons ago but cannot pass it on. Contact him direct.

The problem with being on the cutting edge is that you occasionally get 
sliced from time to time....
