X-tremeGENE™ 9 DNA Transfection Reagent Protocol
Plate cells approx. 24 hours before transfection making sure cells are at optimal concentration (70 – 90 % confluency).
Competent Cell Protocols
Technical Article on competent cells. Transformation is a process by which some bacteria take up foreign genetic material (naked DNA) from the environment.
Ligation of Insert to pGEX DNA
This page describes ligation of insert to pGEX DNA using Cytiva products.
pGEX Vectors
This page describes the characteristics of pGEX expression vectors used with Cytiva products.
DNA Ligation Protocol
The cloning process requires the ligation of linear DNA into a cloning vector. This ability to join fragments of DNA through recombinant technology is essential for many basic experiments in biotechnology.
