This preparation of high molecular weight DNA is appropriate for use in the polymerase chain reaction (PCR)* process and other molecular biology applications.
*The PCR process is covered by patents owned by Hoffmann-La Roche Inc. Use of the PCR process requires a license.
**source culture ATCC BAA-1507 is not available for distribution.
The presence of pMT1 and pPCP1 and the absence of pCD1 in BAA-1507D-5 have been confirmed by PCR amplification of plasmid-specific sequences from extracted DNA.
