Recombineering technology permits flexible engineering of large DNA in Escherichia coli without dependence on suitably placed restriction sites. However, recombineering is limited for modifying highly repetitive DNA because of its potential to trigger instability by uncontrolled self-recombination of the repeats. In this study, induction of the recombineering enzymes and growth condition of the host are optimized to demonstrate intact modification of bacterial artificial chromosomes (BACs… CONTINUE READING
