After 2 hours I will add extra enzyme. 4uL XhoI to tube 1 and 2uL of each enzyme to tube 2.
We are going to digest with XhoI as normal. Hopefully using a smaller vector like pBluescript will allow for successful ligations. Apparently E coli doesn't like large sequences, so that explains why the previous attempts didn't pan out.
The double digest has a different use, but still ultimately the same. I think we want to clone using pRS413 still (for this case) and cutting with 2 enzymes should give us smaller fragments. Comparison on a gel between the two digests should determine if the fragment sizes get smaller. Steve Koch 17:42, 1 April 2009 (EDT): I still don't think it's worth the effort for the double digest. I don't expect we'll ever want to chromatinize these plasmids. Plus, 50%-ish of your double-digested genomic DNA will be unclonable (it will have Eco-Eco or Xho-Xho ends.
