Template DNA

A template DNA encoding a target protein needs to be prepared by customers.

For the template DNA, you need to consider following features.

  • T7 promoter and ribosome binding site (Shine-Dalgarno sequence) are needed upstream of the gene of interest.
  • All stop codons (amber (TAG), ocher (TAA) and opal (TGA)) are available.
  • More than 10 nucleotides are necessary downstream of the stop codon.
  • Both circular and linear DNA (such as PCR product or plasmid DNA digested by restriction enzyme) are available.
  • T7 terminator is required downstream of the gene of interest for circular DNA.
  • T7 terminator is not necessary for linear DNA.
