Unformatted text preview: Recombinant DNA Restriction Enzymes 1) First discovered from a study of the interactions between phage and bacteria. 2) Bacteria can produce an enzyme, called a restriction enzyme , that cleaves DNA at a specific sequence, called a restriction site . - Distinct from general nucleases, which cleave DNA randomly, either from the ends (exonucleases) or at internal sites (endonucleases). 3) The host cell modifies its own restriction sites for the restriction enzymes it makes via methylation that is catalyzed by a site- specific methylase.

(e.g. Mbo I also cleaves at GATC, and so is an isochizomer of Sau 3A.) Frequency of cutting of recognition enzymes Sau 3A (GATC) cuts (¼)(¼)(¼)(¼) = once every 256 base pairs (assuming G/C = A/T, which is often does not) Bam H1 (GGATCC) cuts (¼)(¼)(¼)(¼)(¼)(¼) = once every ~4Kb Hind II (GTPyPuAC) cuts (¼)(¼)(½)(½)(¼)(¼) = once every ~1Kb 5’ overhang ( Eco RI) 5’-GAATTC-3’ ⇒ 5’-G AATTC-3’ 3’-CTTAAG-5’ 3’-CTTAA G-5’ “Sticky” ends 5’ overhang ( Sma I) 5’-CCCGGG-3’ ⇒ 5’-CCC GGG-3’ 3’-GGGCCC-5’ 3’-GGG CCC-5’ “Blunt” ends 3’ overhang ( Pst I) 5’-CTGCAG-3’ ⇒ 5’-CTGCA G-3’ 3’-GACGTC-5’ 3’-G ACGTC-5’ + + +- O H H O- P O 4- H O- H O- P O 4-- O H- O H- P O 4- P O 4- P O 4 P O 4- Human DNA cleaved with Eco RI Corn DNA cleaved with Eco RI 5’- C-G-G-T-A-C-T-A-...
