Subcloning of fungal cDNA from pBK-CMW into a plasmid vector pUC19 using fungal gene CIH
A plasmid is a circular, double stranded DNA molecule that replicates independently of the chromosome DNA within a cell.pUC19 is one of the most commonly plasmid cloning vector used due to its high copy replication number
(approx. 100 copies per cell), ampR (ampicillin resistance gene) andterminal fragment of β -galactosidase (lac Z). It is circular double stranded and it has
2686 base pair length from which 54 are multiple cloning sites polylinker that contains unique sites for specific restriction endonucleases. pUC19 contains ampicillin resistance gene, which allows selection for bacteria that has received a copy of the…show more content… The samples used shows the distance moved by each.
This fragment sizes were determined by comparing the unknown to a set of standard samples of known concentration, using table 2 data.

Bacterial cells are plated and allowed to grow into colonies. All bacteria that will break up pUC19 will grow on ampicillin agar because pUC19 has ampicillin resistance. Transformed cell
