recognition sites and cloning?
Posted 01 October 2012 - 08:12 PM
I know what a plasmid is , I know what sticky ends (cohesive extremities) are but I dont know how the multiple cloning sites in this plasmid are located so im a bit lost!
Question: U must clone a DNA fragment having Sau3A sticky ends.
The plasmid to be used for the cloning experiment has the following MCS
EcoR1, BamH1, Xba1, HindIII
*Describe how you would do the cloning experiment.
Restriction enzyme recognition sites
EcoR1 = GAATTC (the enzyme cuts after the G)
BamH1 = GGATTC (the enzyme cust after the first G)
Xba1 = TCTAGA (the enzyme cuts after the first T)
HindIII = AAGCTT (the enzyme cuts after the first A)
Sau3A = GATC (the enzyme cuts before the G)

As this is homework, I'm not giving a full answer, you need to provide a bit more input so that we can help you learn rather than just having us supply the answer.
