Co In E Example of RE = EcoRI RE are named after their source EcoRI = from a strain of E. coli Cuts DNA at specific sequence = palindrome 5’…GAATTC…3’ …G AATTC… 3’…CTTAAG…5’ …CTTAA G… RE cut DNA into fragments Fragments can be joined by 2nd type of enzyme = DNA ligase Scientist can use these enzymes to splice together any 2 DNAs

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 transfected cells will die Recombinant DNA technology

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
