TOPO® TA Cloning® Dual Promoter kits are for fast, efficient cloning and subsequent in vitro transcription. These kits include the pCR™II-TOPO® TA vector with dual T7 and SP6 promoters. By eliminating time-consuming and tedious restriction site cloning, TOPO® cloning is the most reliable cloning method, featuring a 3-step protocol and 5-minute cloning reaction, and yielding up to 95% recombinants.

Convenient features of this TOPO® TA Cloning® Dual Promoter kit include:
• 3´-T overhangs for direct ligation of Taq-amplified PCR products
• T7 and SP6 promoters for efficient in vitro transcription
• M13 forward and reverse primer sites for sequencing
• 16 convenient restriction sites, including EcoRI, flanking your insert for subsequent excision or subcloning
• Kanamycin and ampicillin resistance for your choice of selection in E. coli
• Easy blue/white colony screening for selection of recombinants
• Includes OneShot® TOP10 Competent cells for added convenience and highest cloning efficiencies
