The question about TATA sequence flexibility

Good day :) We know that: The TATA box is the sequence in DNA found in the promoter region of genes in archaea and eukaryotes that is ... are stretched and contracted when bending the DNA molecule (in case of circular DNAs)? http://i.imgur.com/wjkrwzw.jpg

... to mention, that synthesized oligos have 5'-OH and 3'-phosphate ends... DNA ligase removes 3'-phosphates and replaces it with -OH. Thus, synthesized ... on this? Will those nick be gone and will bacteria amplify intact circular dsDNA plasmids? tx

Re: Markerless mutants using suicide vector

... difference between the two) are not so obvious for us. Our vector is a circular plasmid. Can you elaborate on what you mean by two linear pieces that are homologous to each other? Do you mean using a linear DNA to KO the gene of interest? If so, we had actually successfully applied ...

Restriction enzyme - I think my teacher made a mistake.

The vector is a circular molecule containing a total of 5730 bp. It has sites for the restriction enzymes ... PstI and EcoRI. (The chicken gene fragment replacing the smaller segment of plasmid DNA between these restriction enzyme sites). Where is says Pstl, isn't it meant to be Sstl?

Re: help please 1

... - All cells require genetic information, and store it in one or more DNA molecules- What does it say require? Why not use that all cells have genetic information? - The bacterial chromosome is circular and is organised into an amorphous structure called a nucleoid that is ...
