What is cloning
What is Cloning?

  • Making multiple identical copies of a gene

  • This can be placed into a vector

  • This in turn can be placed into a host bacteria

  • Modern plasmid vectors are designed to make the process fast and easy

  • Inclusions of antibiotics and other screening methods ensure correct gene cloning


Steps in the cloning process
Steps in the Cloning Process

Choose a vector

  • Isolate Protein


Isolation of protein
Isolation of Protein

  • Amino acid sequencing

  • Purify protein

  • Sequence protein

  • Design primer

  • Run PCR

  • Result: DNA of interest

PDI

Isolate Protein

  • Start with PDI

  • Obtain sequence from database

  • Make primers

  • Run PCR


Steps in the cloning process1
Steps in the Cloning Process

  • Isolate Protein

  • Choose and Prepare Vector


Choosing and preparing the vector
Choosing and Preparing the Vector

  • pCR 4 – TOPO

    • Small plasmid

    • LacZ – ccdB

      • Selective for ccdB gene

  • Insert PCR Product

    • A overhang

    • Vector has T overhang

  • Ligation

    • Topoisomerase


Steps in the cloning process2
Steps in the Cloning Process

  • Isolate Protein

  • Choose and Prepare Vector

  • Transform intoHost


Transforming into expression host
Transforming into Expression Host

  • E. Coli Cells

    • Soak in CaCl2

      • Make them competent

  • Insert vector

    • Heat shock

  • Spread on culture plate

    • Kanamycin added for selection

  • Incubate


Steps in the cloning process3
Steps in the Cloning Process

  • Isolate Protein

  • Choose and Prepare Vector

  • Transform into Host

  • Extraction of Cloned Gene

White

Blue/white?

  • Choose colonies

    • White

  • Place in LB medium

    • Contains Ampicillin & Kanamycin

    • Incubate

  • Isolate cloned gene

    • Cell pellet

    • Gene pellet

  • Run gel to confirm you cloned correct gene

  • Sequence


Sequencing
Sequencing

  • Add primers to DNA

    • T7 upstream

    • T3 downstream

  • Dideoxynucleotides

    • Terminates synthesis

  • Fluorescent Dyes

    • Help in fast sequencing

    • Dyes different weights

  • Polyacrylamide Gel Electrophoresis


Results of sequencing
Results of Sequencing

  • One was PDI 1

    • White colony

  • One was vector

    • Base pairs between 1550 and 2300

    • ccdB gene not expressed


My application
My Application

  • Shrimp aquaculture

  • Microbial community

  • Build up of ammonia

  • Clone gene which expresses desired trait
