pMALc2x transformation into MG1655

I want to transform E.coli strain MG1655 with my plasmid (pMALc-2x derivative, MBP fusion). Unfortunately I cannot get any clones. I can transform those cells with different plasmid (so they are competent) and I can transform my plasmid to different strain. It's just this combination which doesn't work. It's not because of my gene - I don't get any clones even if I try with empty plasmid. Does anyone know what could be the reason? Thanks a lot!
