I have used Gentamycin at 10 ug/ml successfully. In my hands, the cosmid
pAM2 (a derivative of pLAFR1 with the Gent cassette from pLB41 cloned in)
worked ok on LB, although it was a better Kan resistance marker than Gent.
I believe that the gene is an 3-N-Acetyl-transferase, AAC(3). Ref: Foster,
T. J.. 1983. Microbiological Reviews. Plasmid Determined Resistance to
Antimicrobial Drugs and Toxic Metal Ions in Bacteria. 47:361-409.
Which vector are you using and do you know which Gentamycin resistance
cassette is present? If the copy # of your construct is very low then you
may have to drop the amount of Gent present.
