    TaKaRa t4 dna polymerase takara dna blunting kit takara biotechnology kyoto japan
    Schematic overview of the construction of a DNA-shuffled and truncated enzyme library by the MURA method. The sequences of the MURA primer can be chosen on any desired site of the parent gene. This figure represents a procedure using a 3′-complementary MURA primer, and thus N-terminal-truncated and shuffled variants of PlaA are constructed. The steps shown are random fragmentation of the parent gene pool by DNase I (a), unidirectional reassembly with the MURA primer (b), separation of the fragments of interest by preparative agarose gel electrophoresis (c), formation of blunt ends by S1 nuclease or <t>T4</t> DNA polymerase on both termini (d), sticky-end formation by a restriction enzyme on one terminus (e), and ligation into an expression vector (f). The order of steps c, d, and e can be altered to d, e, and c without affecting the efficiency of library construction. The diamonds on the bars representing genes indicate possible mutations during shuffled and unidirectional reassembly PCR.

    Article Snippet: After the unidirectionally reassembled DNA fragments were purified, they were blunt-ended on both ends with T4 DNA polymerase or S1 nuclease and then sticky-ended on the 3′ end with Sal I. Fragments in the range of about 500 to 960 bp were isolated by preparative agarose gel electrophoresis and cloned into pSTV28.

    Article Snippet: We supposed that the reasons might include: (i) CIAP mixture perhaps contained some inhibitors from CIAP or the other components of CIAP mixture; and (ii) an oligo might be hard to be phosphorylated by T4 DNA ligase if it were incubated in CIAP mixture at 85°C for more than 15 min. Our DNA sequencing results demonstrated one or more base deletion(s) at the ligation junction between linkers, but the base deletion background could be significantly reduced if the ligation products of linkers A–B and C–D were purified with a PCR product purification kit before PCR.

( F ) The ligation products of linkers A–B preincubated with T4 PNK in the E. coli DNA ligase reaction mixture without ATP. The ligase was E. coli DNA ligase (Takara). Lane 1∶1 µl of 1 µM oligo 15; Lane 2: linkers A–B were not preincubated with T4 PNK; Lane 3: linkers A–B were preincubated with T4 PNK; Lane 4: the negative control.

    Article Snippet: We supposed that the reasons might include: (i) CIAP mixture perhaps contained some inhibitors from CIAP or the other components of CIAP mixture; and (ii) an oligo might be hard to be phosphorylated by T4 DNA ligase if it were incubated in CIAP mixture at 85°C for more than 15 min. Our DNA sequencing results demonstrated one or more base deletion(s) at the ligation junction between linkers, but the base deletion background could be significantly reduced if the ligation products of linkers A–B and C–D were purified with a PCR product purification kit before PCR.

    The radioautograph of oligo 11 phosphorylated by T4 DNA ligase. The oligo 11 was phosphorylated by using commercial T4 DNA ligase. The phosphorylation products were loaded on a 15% denaturing PAGE gel (10×10×0.03 cm, A:B = 29∶1, 7 M urea, 0.5 x TBE). Electrophoresis was run in 0.5 x TBE at 100 V and 25°C for 3 hrs. The gel was dried between two semipermeable cellulose acetate membranes and radioautographed at −20°C for 1–3 days. The arrows indicate the phosphorylation products. The positive controls were oligo 11 phosphorylated by T4 PNK. ( A ) Oligo 11 was phosphorylated by T4 DNA ligase at 37°C for 2 hrs.
