A restriction map of the 272-kb IncHI2 plasmid R478 was constructed by using the enzymes ApaI, XbaI, SalI, and XhoI. The map was derived from cloned restriction fragments from R478 inserted into cosmid and plasmid vectors as well as from double-digestion analysis of R478 and R478 miniplasmids. All previously known resistance determinants were cloned from R478, and their positions were located on the restriction map. A region involved in incompatibility was cloned and mapped. The location of a previously unreported arsenite resistance gene was also determined. The genes encoding tellurite resistance, colicin B resistance, and phage inhibition were found to be associated with a 6.7-kb SalI fragment of R478.
