Abstract:   (1583 Views)
Development of yeast artificial chromosome (Y AC) vectors, molecular cloning of large segments of chromosomal DNA, and their propagation in yeast cells has become feasible. Overlapping Y AC provides a route to the development of physical maps of entire mammalian chromosomes. A rapid method was developed to isolate and sequence termini of Y AC inserts quickly. The Y AC clone is digested with a range of restriction enzymes, and ligated with a linker at its ends. The digested fragments were amplified using modified vector specific primers and a universal linker primer. PCR products were sequenced and the information used to drive new sets of primers for screening of Y AC libraries to obtain overlapping clones and construct existing Y AC contig.
