A Simple Polymerase Chain Reaction-Based Method for the Construction of Recombinase-Mediated Cassette Exchange Donor Vectors
Jack R. Bateman, C.-ting Wu


Here we describe a simple method for generating donor vectors suitable for targeted transgenesis via recombinase-mediated cassette exchange (RMCE) using the ΦC31 integrase. This PCR-based strategy employs small attB “tails” on the primers used to amplify a sequence of interest, permitting the rapid creation of transgenes for in vivo analysis.
