You can also get a vector from Bernie Moss at the NIH designated pTM1. This is 
a PUC vector with the EMCV IRES site downstream from a T7 promoter. There is 
also a MCS downstream of the IRES. We have used this an it dramatically 
increases expression with one caveat. You MUST clone into the NCO1 site and 
the ATG in that site MUST be the initiation amino acid of your protein.

Please see Nature V 348:91-92, 1990

Good luck.
