Cloning Genes Is a Multistep Process

Why is it an advantage that many restriction-enzyme recognition sites read the same on either strand of the DNA molecule when read from the 5′ end of the DNA? Remember: Restriction enzymes bind DNA and move along the molecule, looking for a recognition site.

Summary Introduction

To describe: The reasons behind the advantage that a number of restriction enzymes recognition sites read the same when reading from either side of the strand of DNA molecule.

Introduction: Every restriction enzyme is specific in forming the incisions in the strand of DNA by recognizing the specific sites in genome sequence. The DNA strands are formed from the clubbing of various nucleotides that are joined to each other by hydrogen bonding. Nucleotides are attached to each other by being complementary in origin.

Explanation of Solution

The restriction enzymes are responsible for the formation of incisions in the DNA strands at a specific position by recognizing the particular nucleotide sequence. The enzyme hydrolyzes the bonds between the nucleotides which results in the conversion of double-stranded DNA to the single-stranded DNA...
