How to joint two cloning genes?

Postby rabbitdoctor » Fri Apr 08, 2011 9:39 pm

I want to construct a fusion gene, which comes from chromosome translocation.
I have the sequences of the two DNA fragment. But how can I joint them together?
One ends AACAGG
One begins TCCTCC
I input the sequence AACAGGTCCTCC, and try to find a restriction enzyme to cut them.
But they gave me four enzymes: AvaII, EcoO109I, PpuMI, Sau96I.
The sequence of Sau96I is GGNCC. What does N mean?
Can I use this enzyme to joint two genes?
Or is there any other way to joint the two genes?
I don't want to add enzyme site between two genes, for that maybe interfere the fusion gene's function.

and why do you need to add restriction place? You could use simply fusion PCR

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

You could try Slicing by Overlapping PCR (SOE-ing), its very easy. You just need one overlapping primer :)
