My recollection is that Nordeen constructed his plasmids as derivatives
of pSVL (de Wet et al., MCB 7:725, 1987).  The details of construction are
described in Nordeen's Biotechniques paper (6:454, 1988).

I have reconstructed a sequence for pSVL - which I would be happy to 
email you.  Using it, and Nordeen's construction details, it should be
relatively simple to reconstruct the sequence of pT81luc.
