pUC19 vector is also a circular double stranded DNA and is 2686 base pairs long. pUC19 nd pUC18 are identical, except their MCS (multiple cloning site) is reversed.
This plasmid possesses
i) ampicillin resistance gene
ii) the origin of replication derived from pBR322
iii) the lac Z gene derived from E. coli
iv) high copy number
Within the lac region is also found a polylinker sequence having unique restriction sites. It is a popular teaching aide for demonstrating plasmid DNA isolation, restriction digestion and cloning.
