About 5' Race

Postby boyzoe » Wed Dec 09, 2009 9:00 am

Genome of my research species haven't sequenced yet. So after blast with other species, I designed primers and sequenced a fragment for the gene I researched in the species. Then I used 3' Race cloned the 3' fragment. However, I don't know how to get the sequence of 5'.
I know that Smart Race of Clontech can solve the problem. Is there other way to obtain 5' sequence of cDNA?
I propose no commercial kit will be used.
And if you guys have any experiences about 5', I hope you can talk of your method.
Thanks!

What species are you working with?

What NA do you use? cDNA? I would suggest to do gDNA library, there you can perform 5' RACE, can't you?

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

The species is goldfish.

We haven't created gDNA yet. I cloned the gene from cDNA and sequenced 3' fragment. Blasted with zebrafish, there are almost 400bp to ATG. I want to obtain the full length of the gene.

Really grateful for your reply!

you mean, that you miss 400bp of 5' part of gene?
Anyway, I think, even with cDNA this could work. Just design primer like in middle of gene and do the sequencing, you should get at least something ;)
But otherwise, gDNA is the best choice in my opinion ;)
