EZ-Tn5 Transposomes Revolutionize Microbial Genetics
EPICENTRE's novel EZ-Tn5 Transposomes are a useful tool for gene expression and function studies in microorganisms. Simply electroporate the EZ-Tn5 Transposome complex into the microorganism of choice, and screen for the transposon-encoded resistance marker. The EZ-Tn5 Transposome inserts in a highly random manner into bacterial chromosomes or endogenous plasmids. Uses include new bacterial strain development (gene knock-ins), location of specific genetic markers on chromosomes and plasmids and creating gene knockouts. Protocols are also available for constructing custom transposomes using EPICENTRE's pMOD-series Transposon Construction Vectors and purified EZ-Tn5 Transposase.
