2. Focused Resource
– Novel vectors for efficient PCR cloning

Novel three vectors for efficient cloning of PCR products by TA-cloning, blunt-end cloning and either cloning methods were recently developed and published in April of this year as described below, by Dr. Ken Motohashi of the Kyoto Sangyo University. These vectors are now available from us. We are looking forward to receiving your order!

Deposited resources :

– TA cloning vector (cat # RDB17479 pCRT)
By digestion with Xcm I restriction enzyme, it can be used for TA cloning.
clone information : https://brc.riken.jp/dna/RDB17479

– Blunt-end cloning vector (cat # RDB17481 pCRZero)
By digestion with EcoR V restriction enzyme, it can be used for blunt-end cloning.
clone information : https://brc.riken.jp/dna/RDB17481

– TA- and Blunt-end cloning vector (cat # RDB17480 pCRZeroT)
This vector can be used for the TA cloning or blunt-end cloning by digestion with either Xcm I or Sma I, respectively.

– Fluorescent protein probe that can visualize the multiple inter-organelle contact sites in cells.

Split GFP-fragments have a feature that they can emit fluorescence again by reconstitution when both fragments are in close proximity.
When labelled organelles such as mitochondria and ERs by the divided GFP fragments exist together, the contact sites in cells can be visualized by the reconstituted fluorescent protein. The vectors of fluorescent protein probes developed by Dr. Yasushi Tamura of the Yamagata University, Dr. Toshiya Endo of the Kyoto Sangyo University and their colleague are available from the DNA Bank.

4. Request for deposition of your genetic materials
– Please deposit new genetic materials that you have developed to us. We also ask you to deposit modified genetic materials that were derived from our materials.

– Depositors of valuable genetic materials are appreciated and admired by the global research community. Deposition of your genetic materials leads to increasing citation of your original papers. Furthermore, you will contribute the progress of life science enormously.
