   1. X. laevis unfertilized egg

X. laevis unfertilized egg

Name: X. laevis unfertilized egg
Library ID: 1592
Organism: Xenopus laevis
Age: 0
Organ: egg
Tissue: fertilized egg
Host: TOP10
Vector: pBluescript SK-
Vector type: phagemid
Insert digest: 5' EcoRI/XhoI 3'
Stop Codon Status: without
Description: cDNA from 2 ug polyA+ mRNA, oligo dT-primed using 5'-ACTAGTGCGGCCGCCTAGGCCTCGAGTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT-3'. 500,000 unamplified cDNAs were mass excised (from lambda-ZAPII) using ExAssist phage. The resulting single-stranded phagemids were used to infect TOP10F'. This library has been used successfully to clone a number of full-length cDNAs ranging in size from 1.4-4.5 kb. There are <0.5% clones with multiple inserts. One should be suspicious of any clone which gives 3 or more bands in an EcoRI/XhoI digest AND has an internal XhoI site. Library constructed and donated by B. Blumberg (University of California, Irvine), also referred to as Xenopus_laevis_unfertilized_egg_cDNA_library.
