Dictionary » O » Oligonucleotides



polymers made up of a few (2-20) nucleotides. In molecular genetics, they refer to a short sequence synthesised to match a region where a mutation is known to occur, and then used as a probe (oligonucleotide probes).

Re: question for evolutionary biologist.

... was designed based on Genbank Accession Number CP001668 (Mycoplasma mycoides subs. capri str. GM12), was assembled from chemically synthesized oligonucleotides. The sequenced genome was isolated from a yeast clone. The sequenced clone is sMmYCp235-1. This synthetic genome contains all but 14 ...

How to prove that thiol groups are de-protected?

... where thiol group reacts with C=C electron deficient bond. Befor trying to work with proteins, which could be hard, I'm trying to ligate two DNA oligonucleotides, one modified with thiol group, another is modified with acrydite group: DNA1--SH + CH2=CH--C(O)--DNA2 ---> DNA1--S--CH(CH3)--C(O)--DNA2 ...

Designing primers to clone into expression vector

... on the site directed mutagenesis wiki page it says "Variations employ three or four oligionucleotides, two of which may be non-mutagenic oligonucleotides that cover two convenient restriction sites and generate a fragment that can be digested and ligated into a plasmid, while the mutagenic ...

Re: Theories - Origin of Life

... the assembly of nucleosides from component sugars and nucleobases, the assembly of nucleotides from nucleosides and phosphate, and the assembly of oligonucleotides from nucleotides are all thermodynamically uphill in water. That is also true for polypeptide chains that join amino acids. Two amino ...
