Enhanced levels of lambda Red-mediated recombinants in mismatch repair mutants.


Homologous recombination can be used to generate recombinants on episomes or directly on the Escherichia coli chromosome with PCR products or synthetic single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) oligonucleotides (oligos). Such recombination is possible because bacteriophage lambda-encoded functions, called Red, efficiently recombine linear DNA with homologies as short as… (More)
