Can I redo a linearization - (Mar/31/2010 )

Hi All,

Got a bit of a problem. I was linearising a plasmid, cutting with BamH1 in one tube and Xba1 in the second (making sense and antisense probes) but I made a silly mistake and mixed up the buffers. Can I clean up the mix and isolate the plasmid again and redo???

Any help would be brilliant

Cheers :rolleyes:

Yes, your DNA is still there. It might even be cut correctly. Most restriction enzymes will cut even if it is the wrong buffer.
