If the oligonucleotide carries a radioactive phosphorus (32P) or other detectable label, its binding can be monitored and the presence of the gene confirmed. This is the principle involved in the Southern blotting procedure (named after its inventor, Southern) used to detect genes as shown in Fig. 14. Fragments generated by the restriction-enzyme digestion of DNA are separated on a gel, 40 MOLECULAR AND CELL BIOLOGICAL FOUNDATIONS OF BIOTECHNOLOGY [CH. 2 transferred and bound to filter paper (nylon membrane), and denatured to separate strands.

1991; Fox, 1991). Recent initiatives aimed at sequencing the human genome of nearly 3 billion base pairs rely heavily on the speed and automation of DNA sequence determination. Other strategies of sequencing such as the one using computerized approaches and hybridization methods are also in early stages of development (Barinaga, 1991). Protein microsequencing and peptide synthesis Developments in the methods for the sequencing of proteins obtainable only in small amounts have been invaluable for the development of recombinant DNA.

Over the course of the last two decades, over 700 restriction enzymes recognizing over a hundred unique sequence motifs in DNA have been isolated (some restriction enzymes from different sources recognize the same cleavage site). 6 lists a few commonly used restriction enzymes and their recognition sites. The overhangs produced by different enzymes vary and some restriction enzymes (EcoR V, Sma I) create blunt ends at the cleavage site. However, DNA ligase is also capable of joining blunt-ended DNA under specific reaction conditions.
