This cDNA library (plasmid DNA) is constructed from Saccharomyces cerevisiae, strain S288Cderived poly(A)+ RNA at the log phase by the Linker-Primer method (Ref.1) by Prof. H. Nojima of Osaka University. This library is unidirectionally cloned by using the oligo (dT)18 linker primer which contains the restriction enzyme site of Not I, and BamHI (Bgl II)-Sma I adaptor. The pLZ3 vector (shown below) used in this library can not replicate in S. cerevisiae but contains pUCori for replication in E. coli 


PCR screening of known or unknown gene: Prepare the primers for the known or unknown gene (cDNA) and amplify the gene by PCR from this library followed by cloning to an appropriate vector. Standard amplifying conditions: 35 cycles of PCR reactions using 10-100 ng of cDNA as a template. (Change the quantity of template and the number of cycles depending on the expression rate of mRNA of the objective gene.)


* This library is to be used only by the purchaser. It is not allowed to amplify and transfer the library to a third person.
* Related products: human tissue specific cDNA libraries and cDNA libraries of model organisms  


Construction of this library is described in Supplementary data of Ref.3
