Primers are used to identify the gene of interest and replicate them.
1. Mutate them using restriction enzymes, ligation enzymes, and PCR. Mutagenesis is easily accomplished by using restriction enzymes to cut out portions of one genome and insert them into a plasmid. PCR can also be used to facilitate mutagenesis. Plasmids are mapped out indicating the locations of their origins of replication and restriction. They identify the portion of DNA to be multiplied and provide a starting place for replication. 3. Taq polymerase. This is the chain reaction in the name polymerase chain reaction. PCR is so efficient because it multiplies the DNA exponentially for each of the 25 to 75 cycles. A cycle takes only a minute or so and each new segment of DNA.

Abstract The Delta oleate desaturase gene FADwhich converts oleic acid into linoleic acid, is the key enzyme determining the fatty acid composition of seed oil.
In this study, we inhibited the expression of endogenous Delta oleate desaturase GmFadb gene by using antisense RNA in soybean Williams The results indicate that the metabolically engineered plants exhibited a significant increase in oleic acid up to No structural differences were observed between the fatty acids of the transgenic and the nontransgenic oil extracts.
Introduction Vegetable oils form an important part of the human diet, providing concentrated sources of energy and essential nutrients. A process is used for the deacidification of a vegetable oil in which the major acid of the vegetable oil is from the group comprised of epoxy fatty acids, hydroxy fatty acids, linoleic acid, and oleic acid [ 1 ].
The consumption of oils with high oleic acid content is beneficial because this monounsaturated fatty acid not only improves the shelf life but also reduces the need for hydrogenation, a process adding to the cost of the oil as well as generating unwanted trans fat that has been linked to many health problems in humans [ 2 — 4 ].
The commodity soybean oil is composed of five fatty acids: The endoplasmic reticulum-associated oleate desaturase FAD2 1-acyloleoyl-sn-glycerophosphocholine desaturase is the key enzyme responsible for the production of linoleic acid in plants [ 6 — 8 ].
Studies have shown that FAD was expressed primarily in the development of seeds, while FAD was expressed in both the vegetative tissues and the development of seeds [ 1011 ]. Thereby, this confirmed the importance expression during peak oil synthesis, while a possible role was also revealed for FADC under cool temperature conditions [ 12 — 14 ].
For example, by antisense suppression of FAD2 in soybeans, a transgenic line was obtained that produced oil with a higher C Similarly, downregulating FAD and FatB using interference RNA has enabled the production of soybeans with a significantly higher oleic acid content up to Recently, Plenish high oleic soybeans have been in commercial production by DuPont since They were developed using a biotech process known as gene silencing [ 22 ].
These results demonstrate that the GmFAD2 family members play a very important role in metabolically engineered oil seed plants [ 23 ].
We analyzed and investigated the fatty acid composition of the transgenic lines and also discussed the nature of the transcript produced by GmFadb. Materials and Methods 2. The cotyledonary-node method used in this study followed the procedure described by Paz et al. In brief, soybean seeds were surface-sterilized by placing seeds into a tightly sealed chamber containing chlorine gas for 16 h.
The imbibed soybean seeds were placed on sterile filter paper and cut longitudinally along the hilum. After this inoculation, seven explants adaxial side up were randomly placed in Petri dishes 90 mm in diameter 15 mm deep on sterile filter paper, placed on solid CCM containing 0. Then, the hypocotyl and shoots were trimmed from the explants and the remaining cotyledons with developing nodules were subcultured to a fresh SI medium for another two weeks.
Four weeks after SI, the cotyledons were removed from the explants and the remaining tissues were transferred into a shoot elongation SE medium. The explants were then transferred to fresh SE medium every two weeks until the regenerated shoots were suitable for rooting.
The incubation conditions were the same as the conditions for SI. After a period of weeks, the roots were fully developed to cm in length and eventually transplanted into the pots to be grown in the greenhouse.
The transgene events were named by EB to EB The T0 generation transgenic plants were grown in the greenhouse and the T1 and T2 lines were grown under field conditions.
The product was sequenced using T7 and M13 vector sequencing primers to confirm the sequence of the ligated product. The pCAMBIA binary vector has a kanamycin resistance gene for bacterial selection and a phosphinothricin acetyl transferase bar resistance gene for plant selection.
The bar gene was driven by the constitutive CaMV 35S promoter. The Agrobacterium tumefaciens strain EHA was used in this study. Primers for different experiments. Leaf painting was performed following the procedure described by Ma et al.Identification of Insertion Points of the Macrophage Fas-Induced Apoptosis (Mafia) Transgene.
August 30, by admin. Robert E. Brown III and Dr. Sandra Burnett, Ph.D., MMBio inverse nested-set PCR was used to identify the sequence adjoining the 5’ end of the Mafia transgene. Mutational Analysis of an RNA Polymerase II Elongation Factor in Drosophila melanogaster performed in vivo structure-function studies using transgenic was generated using two-step PCR.
BACs can be used as transgenes to express reporter molecules (GFP), Cre recombinase, and mutant alleles in cell culture and mice. The BAC Core also prepares gene targeting vectors for the modification of chromosomes in ES cells. The Transgenic mouse core guarantees that at least three transgenic founder mice will be produced for each DNA.
But like any experiment, it requires specialized materials, effort, and workflow design for meaningful results. A plant-based perspective. March 13, BY Ian Street. Ian Street. CRISPR! It just works. Like magic. The most common transformation vector to create transgenic plants, Agrobacterium tumefaciens, is also variably efficient. To test the activities of the E8 sequence in vivo, we examined transgenic larvae carrying an Mtk SE8-LacZ transgene. Wild-type and SE8 regulatory sequences were PCR-amplified by using a 5′ biotinylated primer and coupled to magnetic Dynal beads. Cotransfection experiments using Mtk-Luc and Drs-Luc reporter genes demonstrate that DEAF. Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) 2. Restriction Enzymes (Molecular Scissor) 3. Gel Electrophoresis 4.

Molecular cloning. In a conventional molecular cloning experiment, the DNA to be cloned is obtained from an organism of interest, then treated with enzymes in the test tube to generate smaller DNA fragments. Subsequently, these fragments are then combined with vector DNA to .
