Brachmann 3 Cloning: definition copying biological stuff human identical twins are biological copies (naturally occurring) artificially creating an organism that is genetically identical to another organism (later in this lecture)= reproductive cloning making many copies of a gene= recombinant DNA cloning

©2003 C. Brachmann 4 Why clone a gene? Greatly aids further study of that gene, and its use in diagnosis or treatment A particular gene can be isolated and sequenced Control sequences of DNA can be identified and analyzed Protein/RNA function can be investigated Mutations can be identified (e.g. gene defects related to specific diseases) Organisms can be engineered for specific purposes (e.g. insulin production, insect resistance, etc.) Copyright © 2008 Dr. Salme Taagepera, All rights reserved.

Gene cloning: an overview 5 In gene cloning, DNA fragments (genes) are: isolated inserted into suitable vector molecules introduced into a host cell The host cell replicates, thereby producing copies (clones) of the gene Copyright © 2008 Dr. Salme Taagepera, All rights reserved.

©2003 C. Brachmann 6 A vector Serves as a carrier to transfer foreign genetic material into a cell Three types: Plasmid, circular, 3-10 kb in size Phage, packages 12-20 kb recomb DNA into phage head Cosmid, 40-45 kb, either plasmid or phage Can be introduced easily into host cells to be replicated (almost exclusively bacteria- E. coli)

©2003 C. Brachmann 7 A vector Is not a chromosome and does not become part of (integrate into) the host chromosome Propagates independently as an extra- chromosomal element--contains a bacterial replication origin
