Comments
Strain of C. elegans used for constructing this library is C. elegans N2 which is a wild type strain.
Single-stranded DNA may be recovered from phagemid constructs using M13KO7 helper phages.
To prepare phagemid from lambdaMGU2, grow recombinants on a RecA- host expressing the Cre protein (E. coli 1046[pCRE1], ATCC 77368) and select for ampicillin resistance. The pMGU product is 4.185 kb.
Inserts can be amplified using the following primers flanking the BamHI cloning site: upstream 5'-AAGAGGCAGAACTGGCAG-3' and downstream 5'-ATCGATGCATAGCGATTC-3'.
The order of the major features in the cloning region of the lambda vector is: lambda J - SmaI - SalI - loxP - EcoRI - M13 ori - ampR - pMB1 ori - HindIII - 3'gam/BamHI/5'gam - XhoI - loxP - SalI - lambda N.
Efficiency of phagemid recovery is approximately 20%. Plasmid pCRE1 may be a low level contaminant, but is easily distinguished from pMGU DNA.
