Overview

Standard DNA ligation using NEB T4 ligase to form a vector.

Materials

For a 10 μL ligation reaction:

  • 3 μL sterile ddH2O
  • 1 μL 10X ligation buffer
  • 5 μL ~100nM linker dsDNA (either hybridization product or digested, purified PCR product)
  • 0.5 μL ~10nM backbone dsDNA (gel extracted digestion product from donor plasmid)
  • 0.5 μL T4 ligase

(Note: ratio of backbone to linker given here is ~1:100. This may need to be adjusted in some cases.)

Procedure

  1. Add the reaction components together in order listed above. Mix gently and spin.
  2. Include -linker control reaction (sub sterile ddH2O for linker).
  3. Incubate 16 °C overnight (8 hr minimum).
  4. Transform 2.5 μL rea(or more, if necessary, to obtain an acceptable amount of colonies) into chemically competent cells.
