Clontech:GenomeWalker Kits

By: Clontech  06-Dec-2011

GenomeWalker Kits provide a simple, PCR-based method for walking upstream or downstream in genomic DNA from a known sequence, such as an expressed sequence tag (EST). GenomeWalker allows you to take individual steps of up to 6 kb in genomic DNA using long-distance PCR. Walks can be extended simply by taking multiple steps, using new primers based on the sequence obtained in previous steps.

GenomeWalker Human Kit

The GenomeWalker Human Kit contains four premade libraries of adaptor-ligated, species-specific genomic DNA fragments. These libraries are constructed from highly pure genomic DNA of high molecular weight. The DNA is digested separately with four different restriction enzymes and ligated to the specially designed GenomeWalker Adaptor. Each kit contains the reagents necessary for up to 20 walks with each library, and 150 primary and 300 nested PCR reactions

GenomeWalker Universal Kit

The GenomeWalker Universal Kit allows you to construct GenomeWalker libraries from the genome of any species. The Universal Kit contains reagents sufficient to generate libraries from three different samples and to perform 80 walks.

For all kits, you must provide the set of gene-specific primers (GSP) and a mix of thermostable DNA polymerases suitable for long-distance PCR (LD PCR). We recommend the Advantage 2 Polymerase Mix or PCR Kit.

Note: The GenomeWalker Kits do not contain thermostable DNA polymerases for PCR.

Clontech:Genomic DNA

High-quality genomic DNA is isolated from the whole blood of disease free sources, that contain no glycogen, to obtain highly pure, intact genomic DNA. The sources of whole blood for the Human Genomic DNA have tested negative for HIV antibodies and Hepatitis B surface antigen. This DNA is suitable for Southern hybridization analysis and genomic library construction.


Clontech:Multiple Tissue cDNA Panels

For rapid screening of gene expression under different apoptotic conditions we provide an MCF7 Apoptosis cDNA Panel, consisting of first-strand cDNA samples synthesized from the total RNA of cells treated with various apoptosis-inducing agents. They offer fast and accurate PCR analysis of gene expression across multiple tissues in a fraction of the time required for Northern or dot blot analysis.
