Cc-ckr-5 gene

Cc-ckr-5 gene

a gene which encodes a protein (also called CC-CKR-5) embedded in the surface of immune cells. The hiv virus (the virus which causes aids) uses the protein to invade the immune cells. People who have one mutated and one working copy of this gene take longer to develop aids after infection with hiv than people who have two working copies of the gene. People who have mutations in both copies of this gene are resistant to hiv infection.

Help: Confused with primers in a PCR of a vector?

... I am an undergrad being introduced to a lot of different lab techniques, so I'm not entirely familiar with what is going on. We recently ligated a gene into a pBS vector and popped it into some E. coli cells. We looked for positive clones via blue/white screening and isolated/purified the respective ...
