Name: RIKEN Xenopus egg Library ID: 1732 Organism: Xenopus laevis Age: 0 Organ: egg Tissue: unfertilized egg Host: DH10B Vector: pCS2G Vector type: plasmid Insert digest: 5' XhoI/BamHI 3' Stop Codon Status: without Description: cDNA oligo-dT primed using oligo 5'-GAGAGAGAGAGGATCCAATACTGGAGAGTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTVN-3' and directionally cloned into XhoI and BamHI sites using the 5' adaptor 5'- AGAGAGAGAGCTCGAGCTCTAATAAGGTGACACTATAGAACCA-3'. Size selection was done automatically by the cloning vector (lambda FLC-II, P. Carninci et al., unpublished). Library was amplified at the phage stage and normalized (RoT value = 5). This library was constructed using the CapTrapper method and Trehalose thermoactivated reverse transcriptase to enrich for full-length clones. Library constructed by Piero Carninci (RIKEN, Genome Science Laboratory, Japan: http://genome.rtc.riken.go.jp/) using egg RNA supplied by Marc Kirschner (Harvard Medical School, Dept. of Cell Biology).
