- Clone with speed and efficiency
- Transform into E. coli without clean-up or desalting.
The Fast-Link™ DNA Ligation Kit uses a high-quality ligase (Fast-Link T4 DNA Ligase), that was cloned at Epicentre and formulated to provide extremely rapid, high-efficiency DNA ligation. Cohesive-end ligations can be performed in 5 minutes at room temperature. In contrast to other ligases, it is not necessary to desalt Fast-Link ligation reactions prior to transformation of electrocompetent or chemically competent cells. The Fast-Link Kit can be used for routine and high-throughput DNA cloning.
- Blunt-end and TA cloning of PCR products.
- Ligation of next-gen sequencing adaptors to blunt-ended DNA.
- Genomic DNA cloning and subcloning.
- BAC/fosmid library construction.
- cDNA cloning.
- Linker ligation.
- Cohesive-end ligations in 5 minutes at room temperature
- Blunt-end ligations in 15 minutes at room temperature
- Ligation of PCR product with A-overhangs in 1 hour at 16°C.
- High ligation efficiency (table 1)
- Desalting of ligation products is not needed prior to transformation of electrocompetent or chemically competent cells.
- BAC ligation with inserts >100 kb can be performed in 4 hours, instead of overnight reactions as with other ligases.
