PCR The two deoxyribonucleotide primers used for PCR amplification of an internal gene fragment of B. thailandensis BTH_II0868 (hcp1) were purchased from Invitrogen (Frederick, MD) and designated II0868-up (5’-AGGGCAAGATTCTCGTCCAG-3’) and II0868-dn (5’-TCTCGTACGTGAACGATACG-3’).
The PCR product was sized and isolated using agarose gel electrophoresis, cloned using the pCR2.1-TOPO TA Cloning Kit (Invitrogen), and transformed into chemically competent E. coli TOP10. PCR amplification was performed in a final reaction volume of 100 μl containing 1X Taq PCR Master Mix (Qiagen), 1 μM oligodeoxyribonucleotide ATM Kinase Inhibitor research buy primers, and approximately 200 ng of B. thailandensis DW503 genomic
DNA. PCR cycling was performed using a PTC-150 MiniCycler with a Hot Bonnet accessory (MJ Research, Inc.) and heated Tau-protein kinase to 97°C for 5 min. This was followed by 30 cycles of a three-temperature cycling protocol (97°C for 30 s, 55°C for 30 s, and 72°C for 1 min) and one cycle at 72°C for 10 min. DNA manipulation and plasmid conjugation Restriction enzymes, Antarctic MCC950 ic50 phosphatase, and T4 DNA ligase were purchased from Roche Molecular Biochemicals and were used according to the manufacturer’s instructions. DNA fragments used in cloning procedures were excised from agarose gels and purified with a GeneClean III kit (Q · BIOgene). Bacterial genomic DNA was prepared by a previously described protocol . Plasmids were purified from overnight cultures by using Wizard Plus SV Minipreps (Promega). Plasmid pGSV3-0868 (Table 2) was electroporated into E. coli S17-1 (12.25 kV/cm) and conjugated with B. thailandensis for 8 h, as described elsewhere . Pm was used to counterselect E. coli S17-1 (pGSV3-0868).
