We have devised a strategy to extend the use of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to amplify double-stranded DNA when sequence information is available only at one extremity. The only information required is a short stretch of sequence used to design a gene-specific primer, which is then used in combination with a second generic vector primer at the unknown end. The primers are used in a PCR reaction after ligating the unknown end to a generic vector. Restriction, ligation, amplification and… CONTINUE READING
