The restriction sites were added to primers in order to obtain directional cloning. For CaMV35S promoter, HindIII and AscI sites were added; for TaDof1 gene, AscI and Eco81I sites were added and for Nos terminator, Eco81I and SdaI sites were added to the primers.
AE016958 (tag Map 1636c region 1790543-1791016 coding for hypothetical protein) and also the information on the multiple cloning site of the expression vector pQE30 vector, restriction sites for SacI/HindIII were incorporated into the primers to facilitate directional cloning. In the design of the forward primer, consideration was given to inserting the amplified gene of 30.7kDa protein in frame into the pQE30 vector under the T5 promoter.
The system can also be used for the directional cloning of PCR products, with the resulting clones generated in a transfer-ready format.
