Hey

Equations? calculations? for ligation?

I am not sure if I understand what you mean to convey.

Do you need the ligation recipe or how to calculate the vector-insert ratio? Please be more specific.

insert mass in ng = 6 X (insert lenght in bp/vector lenght in bp) X vector mass in ng

You may change the 6 above depending on the actual ratio you want to get (sometimes a 3:1 works best than 6:1)

One thing to mention, you have to get pure vector and insert before applying this equation. Sometimes RNA contamination will lead to incorrect calculation.

Try 3:1 and 1:1 insert to vector ratio, these two ratio usually rock in ligation reaction.

Hi Sagar,

Go to the 'Biomath Calculator' website using the following link.

http://www.promega.c...ath/default.htm

Click on Ligations: Molar Ratio of Insert to Vector

Enter the parameters of your ligation and it will calculate the relative amounts for you.

Easy! :P
