Also, if you don't have access to a plasmid with a pSC101 origin, I would
be happy to send you one - just write me at the email address below.

NEB also provides plasmids with the p15A origin, which is also compatible
with ColE1-origin plasmids.  pACYC177 and pACYC184 are shipped for free
if requested along with an order.
