Gene Disruption via PCR

[Adapted from Brachmann et al. Yeast, 14:115-132 (1998).]
Reaction mix:

5 Ál 10X Taq Buffer
5 Ál 25 mM MgCl2
2 Ál 10 mM dNTP's
10-100 ng template DNA
25 pmols of each primer
0.5 Ál Taq polymerase (2 Units)
____________________
==> water to 50 Ál total volume

PCR cycle profile:

94C 5 minutes

NOTE: The entire reaction can be used for a transformation without any further purification.

MATERIALS

10X Taq Buffer:
0.5 M KCl
100 mM Tris-Cl, pH 8.5
1% Triton X-100

25 mM MgCl2

10 mM dNTP's

pRS40X template DNA - mini-prep DNA works well

Taq polymerase

Two Gene-specific DNA primers:
One oligonucleotide should consist of 40 nts of gene-specific sequence for one end of the targeted region at the 5' end followed by: 5'-CTGTGCGGTATTTCACACCG-3' (left primer), and another 40 nt homologous to the other side of the targeted region at the 5' end followed by: 5' AGATTGTACTGAGAGTGCAC-3' (right primer). The primers are then used to amplify any auxotrophic marker from a pRS40X or pRS30X integrating plasmid (Sikorski & Hieter, 1989; Brachmann et al. 1998).
