Short Description of Library:
The cDNA library was constructed from mRNA isolated from immature cotyledons of greenhouse grown plants (individual seed fresh weight of 100-300 mg). The library was prepared using the Life Technologies pSuperscript cDNA library construction kit. Complementary DNA was synthesized from mRNA using a poly (dT) sequence with a Not I restriction site. Sal I linker adapters were ligated to the blunt-ended cDNA fragements followed by Not I digestion. The cDNA fragements were directionally cloned into the NotI-Sal I restriciton sites of the pSPORT 1 vector. The ligated cDNA fragments were transformed into E. coli Electro Max DH10B host cells.


Immature cotyledons, greenhouse grown

Vector Information:
The cDNA library was prepared using the pSPORT 1 vector (Life Technologies) to generate a plasmid library. The vector provides ampicillin resistance and allows blue-white color selection for recombinant plasmids. The vector also contains unique Sal I and Not I sites needed to clone cDNA directionally. The cloned cDNA fragemnt can be amplified by the polymerase chain reaction using one of the following vector primer pair combinations: M13 universal and M13 reverse or T7 and SP6.

Miscellaneous Information:
100 ul of the enclosed dilution of the library will give 2000 colonies. Please plate on X-gal/IPTG plates. Of 20 clones picked to date and characterized by PCR, all had inserts of average size of 1300bp.
