Dear Users,
  I have a problem with cloning a PCR amplified fragment into a commercial
expression vector. The PCR amplicon has the same Restr Enz site and the
plasmid only one site ofr it. i end digest the plasmid and fragment,
dephosphorylate, separate on a gel, and purify the gel bands (kit) and then
use the fragments for ligation (20h, 4/ 16 deg C). Once I een saw a
presumably ligated fragment, but no transformed colonies of XL1 Blue.
  suggestions, tips, tricks etc?
