I have a problem in restricting pET-28a(+) and pET-28b(+) vectors with NcoI and XhoI. I have tried Fermentas enzymes with buffer Tango. I tried many times but went invein. Can anybody guide me in this as I am in desperate need of this vector to proceed my work. Thank you in advance for the advice

Thanks jackBean for reply. The enzymes are working. We have pET-28 a-c (+) vectors in our lab. I tried to restrict with XhoI and NcoI seperately but nothing seen on gel. I tried even EcoRI, BamHI, and HindIII but didnt restrict. I dont understand where is the problem. I tried to isolate fresh plasmid but no results. I even tried different concentrations of buffer and enzyme. But before i didnt experience such problems.

Are you sure the vector is as from manufacturer, wasn't it cut already in the past?
we use these vectors and they all function well. Even i cut these before without any difficulty. But now something strange is happening. I put these vectors side by side with pUC19 plasmid and found that its very bigger on the gel compared to pUC19.
