We use hygromycin B resistance markers on our shuttle vectors for 
cloning and expression in mycobacteria. Our vectors are all based on 
p16R1, described in Microbiology 140, 133-138 (1994).

Selection is with 250 ug/ml hyg in E.coli, 50-100 ug/ml in mycobacteria. 

I am not sure if there are any suitable sites to cut out the hyg gene 
only. Email me if you want more info, or if you want me to send you some 
plasmid.
