I'm about to attempt construction of a cDNA library into a GAL4AD plasmid.
I have the mRNA, I have the kit, and I have cells that are 2X10^8/ug, so
I'm almost ready to go. The problem is, I tried a ligation of the
prepared vector, and I got some background. Not much, but some. It was
prepared by cutting with EcoR1, CIP treatment, followed by gel
purification, organic extraction, precipitation.
My question is this; If I use more CIP, I could reduce the background, but
are there any possible detrimental effects of using too much CIP?
How about SIP?
Thanks for any input!
