   CHORI-33: Mouse AKR/J (M) (Mus musculus) BAC Library   

  Background information

The CHORI-33 Mouse AKR/J (Mus musculus) BAC library has been constructed by Dr. Yuko Yoshinga in Pieter De Jong's Laboratory at BACPAC Resources, Children’s Hospital Oakland Research Institute. The preparation of the library followed the cloning approach developed in our laboratory Osoegawa et al., 1998. The mouse sample was obtained through the Jackson Laboratory. DNA was isolated from kidney cells of a male Mus musculus AKR/J mouse. Agarose-embedded high molecular weight DNA was partially digested with EcoRI restriction enzyme. Size fractionated DNA was ligated into the pTARBAC2.1 vector between the EcoRI sites. The ligation products were transformed into DH10B (T1 resistant) electrocompetent cells (Invitrogen). The library has been arrayed into 384-well microtiter dishes. The 22x22cm nylon high-density filters have been made available for probe hybridization screening.

Library characterization was performed by Qing Cao and Dr. Kazutoyo Osoegawa.

BAC library construction was funded by NIH grants HG01165-07SI and HG025323-01 as part of the NIH-funded BAC Resource Network .

No clones were found to be non-recombinant after analysis of CHORI-33 using overgo probes specific for the puc19 fragment.

Data on the CHORI-33 clone insert size distribution has been determined by pulsed-field gel Electrophoresis. Clone Size Distribution has been plotted graphically.

Further in depth characterization of the library is on going in our lab and data will be updated on our web page periodically.
