Rapid one-step recombinational cloning

By Changlin Fu, Daniel R. Wehr, Janice Edwards and Brian Hauge


As an increasing number of genes and open reading frames of unknown function are discovered, expression of the encoded proteins is critical toward establishing function. Accordingly, there is an increased need for highly efficient, high-fidelity methods for directional cloning. Among the available methods, site-specific recombination-based cloning techniques, which eliminate the use of restriction endonucleases and ligase, have been widely used for high-throughput (HTP) procedures. We have developed a recombination cloning method, which uses truncated recombination sites to clone PCR products directly into destination/expression vectors, thereby bypassing the requirement for first producing an entry clone. Cloning efficiencies in excess of 80% are obtained providing a highly efficient method for directional HTP cloning
