Building a Reporter Gene to Determine Chromatin Protein Function


  • Ligation of KAH182 = BBa_S04739 and KAH201 = BBa_S04745 and cloning in DH5α-T.
  • Assembly strategy: The backbone KAH201(S/P)/3403 , the insert is KAH182(X/P)/1675.


> Digests (Fermentas FD)


(1,2) KAH182, 1675 bp, Cut with Xba1 and Pst1, (3,4) KAH201, 3403 bp, Cut with Spe1 and Pst1
(1,2) KAH182, 1675 bp, Cut with Xba1 and Pst1, (3,4) KAH201, 3403 bp, Cut with Spe1 and Pst1
Plasmid DNA 30.00 μl
Enzyme 1* 1.0 μl
Enzyme 2* 1.0 μl
10x FastDigest buffer + green loading dye 1.5 μl
dH2O 0.00 μl
  30.0 μl total
Incubate at 37°C for 10 minutes.
  • Enzyme 1 for KAH182 is Xba1 and for KAH201 is Spe1.
  • Enzyme 2 for KAH182 and KAH201 is Pst1.


  1. Make the (1%) agarose glee and add 15μl of restricted vector in one well and 10 μl of ladder.
