NZY-A PCR cloning kit (MB053)

Refrigerated package


Description: NZY-A PCR cloning kit was designed to allow the direct cloning of PCR products with 3´-A overhangs, which result from amplifications using non-proofreading DNA polymerases. The cloning vector was prepared by cutting NZYTech´s pNZY28 with EcoR V and adding a 3´ terminal thymidine at both ends. These single 3´-T overhangs improve the efficiency of ligation of a PCR product into the plasmid by preventing re-circularization of the vector and providing compatible overhangs for PCR products generated by non-proofreading thermostable polymerases. Vector pNZY28 contains multiple restriction sites within the multiple cloning region. However, vector digestion with EcoR I or BamH I allows the release of the PCR product since the vector cloning region is flanked by recognition sites of both enzymes.

– Easy TA cloning procedure
– High-efficiency cloning (>90% of positive clones)
