#'''*[[User:Megan N McClean|Megan N McClean]]''' When I can't age my dissection plates on my bench for a few days, I will stick them in the 30°C or 37°C warm room the morning of the day I dissect to dry them out a little bit.  It is absolutely infuriating, if not impossible, to try dissection on plates that are wet.

#'''*[[User:Megan N McClean|Megan N McClean]]''' Different tetrad dissection protocols call for using different enzymes to digest the ascus wall.  Our protocol uses a β-glucuronidase from Sigma (G7770) which is a mixture of enzymes derived from Helix pomatia (the Roman snail)Zymolyase, another commonly used enzyme, consists mostly of β-1,3-glucan laminaripentaohydrolase. It hydrolyzes glucose polymers at the β-1,3-glucan linkages releasing laminaripentaose as the principal product.  β-glucuronidase catalyzes hydrolysis of β-D-glucuronic acid residues from the non-reducing end of mucopolysaccharides (also referred to as glycosaminoglycans).

Overview

This protocol describes a simple procedure to annealing and extending two oligos (with homology) to get double-stranded DNA.

Materials

  • Oligos (25μM; take the standard McClean Lab -80°C stock which is at 100μM in TE and dilute it 1:4 in H2O)
  • Takara PCR reagents (see: Takara PrimeStar PCR)

Protocol

  1. Design oligos so that they have ~20bp of overlap.
  2. Dilute oligos to 25μM from the -80°C stock. Dilute into H2O.
  3. For one reaction the PCR mix should be:
    • 10μL 5X Takara Buffer
    • 4μL 2.5mM DNTPs
    • 0.5μL Takara polymerase
    • 1 μL 25μM forward oligo
    • 1 μL 25μM reverse oligo
    • 33.5μL H2O
  4. Run in a thermocycler as follows (notice that we do not use many cycles):
    • 94°C for 5 min
    • Repeat the following three lines 2-3 times:
      • 98°C for 10s
      • 53°C for 20s
      • 72°C for 30s
    • 72°C 5 min
