TOPO® TA Cloning® Kits are designed for cloning PCR products directly from a PCR reaction in just 5 minutes. TOPO® TA Cloning® Kits use a pCR™-TOPO® Vector with covalently bound topoisomerase I for fast cloning and recombinants. The newest TOPO® TA Cloning® Kit comes with a Gateway® (GW) entry vector, pCR™8/GW/TOPO® (Figure 1). This vector has:

• 3´-T overhangs for direct ligation of Taq-amplified PCR products
att sites for rapid recombination into a variety of Gateway® destination vectors
• Novel GW primer sites, within the att regions, located less than 55 base pairs from the PCR product insertion site for convenient sequencing
• Spectinomycin resistance gene for robust selection in E. coli
EcoR I sites flanking the PCR product insertion site for easy excision of inserts

Selected TOPO® TA Cloning® Kits for entry into the Gateway® Technology are available in combo kits combined with a PureLink™ Quick Plasmid Miniprep Kit (50 preps) for fast plasmid purification of your TOPO®-cloned inserts for downstream analysis.

For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
