Dear Ekta,

assuming your construct is ok, then your insert might become expressed
and toxic (or is simply toxic) to your bacteria, there was some damage
to the antibiotic resistance gene or there is a problem with the

You might check the antibiotic, grow at lower temperature, change the
bacterial strain and / or test other (more) clones. Did check your
cloning experiment with a restriction digest?

Maybe you want to explain us your experiment a bit more detailed?

But i am able to isolate DNA to release the fragment to confirm the clone. The recombinant plasmid is growing very less in LB media. What could be the problem.
