Overview

Repeating GoTaq PCR on LCR fragment, cleaning up, and then digesting and inserting into a vector for transformation.

Methods

GoTaq PCR on LCR

I'll be using 320 µL total reaction volume, split into 16 PCR tubes (20 µL each)

Reagent Stock Volume used (µL)
GoTaq 2x MM2x160
Primer (for)100 µM4
Primer (rev)100 µM4
Template50 ng/µL4
H2O-148
Total320

Reactions:

Reaction Forward primer Reverse primer template
DBN008P40P41LCR product

All primers have annealing temperature at 60°C

Thermal cycler program:

STEP TEMP TIME
Initial Denaturation95°C30 seconds
30 Cycles95°C15 seconds
60°C30 seconds
68°C150 seconds
Final Extension68°C5 minutes

Digestion with EcoRI/SpeI

Following instructions here.

Stopped before transformation, after gel extraction (see below).

Results

Gel:

1kb+ ladder, vector (pSB1A3), insert. Expected vector size after treatment with E/S is ~2000bp. Expected insert size is ~2500bp.

Something's going wrong with the PCR product - either the LCR made lots of a small fragment (possible, compare to un-amplified LCR product here, or the PCR is amplifying the wrong size fragment. Also, the large fragment in the product looks to be about 500bp too small. Will try a transformation tomorrow, but not hopeful.
