Hello Jaswant,

You may want to try the pSecTag A,B,C vector from InVitrogen.  It has a
number of the features that you seem to want. i.e.:

a CMV (cytomegalovirus) promoter for protein expression
an Igk leader sequence which directs fusions into the secretory pathway
a MCS (multiple cloning site) available  in three different reading frames
a myc epitope for detection with antibodies
a 6-histidine tail for nickel column purification of fusion peptides
a BGH (bovine growth hormone) polyA signal site
a Zeocin (bleomycin)resistance gene for selection of stable transfectants
an Ampicillin resistance gene for selection in ecoli
a pUC ColE1 origin for replication in ecoli

It is catalog number V900-20

I think you can download the sequence from their web site or they can
fax or email it to you.

I hope this helps ,
