In E Figure 16.8 Cutting and Splicing DNA 113 Recombinant DNA Sticky ends Co In E Getting New Genes into Cells DNA can be incorporated into the host cell by a vector , which should have four characteristics: – The ability to replicate independently in the host cell – A recognition sequence for a restriction enzyme, permitting it to form recombinant DNA – A reporter gene that will announce its presence in the host cell – A small size in comparison to host chromosomes 114 Co In E Insert gene of interest into a vector Then transfect it into bacteria Why bacteria? Easy to grow and manipulate. Much of their molecular biology is known. They grow very fast so can amplify gene of interest very quickly Bacteria contain plasmids = small circular chromosomes that are easily manipulated to carry recombinant DNA into cells Vector must have same restriction site as DNA fragment Reporter gene = usually antibiotic resistance gene, so all non
