The restriction endonucleases AseI, MaeI, MboII, TaqI, and BsmAI were selected for the first PCR product (for the 709-bp amplified product using primers LCO1490 and HC02198), and the restriction enzymes BsaJI, NlaIV, MaeII, TfiI, and BfaI were selected for the second product (for the 597-bp amplified product using primers rntd-10 and C/N-2769) based on the best discrimination and species-specific amplicon patterns.

dagger]) Defined by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis XbaI restriction enzyme pattern.
2], [epsilon]) which pops the symbol from the stack acts by using also the restriction enzyme Bg/I (Appendix 3).
This methodology can also be adopted for identification of mutations, if point mutations cause any creation or loss of restriction enzyme sites.
Although linker-mediated amplification has been in use for many years (5) and its successful use in conjunction with a methylation-sensitive restriction enzyme digest has been described as well (6), we found that a simple restriction enzyme digest followed by linker ligation and PCR yielded insufficient product for downstream microarray analysis when starting with small samples.
In the same way, a restriction enzyme scans a large DNA molecule (analogous to the textbook) to find its particular recognition site (analogous to the word "house").
multiple OTUs possible for a single fragment size) and variation in restriction enzyme efficacy may make the TRFLP technique less effective for use with gross measures of community structure such as diversity and richness.
All isolates were digested with the restriction enzyme XbaI and subjected to pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE).
The method utilizes an oligonucleotide primer that contains a recognition site for a restriction enzyme such that digestion with the restriction enzyme generates a 5' overhang containing the locus of interest.
The restriction enzyme Dde I can delineate the two species; however, when we discovered the ambiguity, no samples remained for analysis.
