 en A simple negative selection method to identify adenovirus recombinants using colony PCR
Zhao, Yongliang; Dong, Zongming; Li, Tengfei & Huang, Gang


Background: The AdEasy system is a fast-track system for generating recombinant adenoviruses using the efficient homologous recombination machinery between shuttle and adenovirus backbone plasmids in Escherichia coli check for this species in other resources BJ5183 cells. The key step is homologous recombination in BJ5183 cells, which is driven by RecA activity. However, culture time is stringently limited to reduce the damage to recombinant plasmids by RecA activity. Therefore, rapid identification of recombinant adenoviruses within the limited time-period is critical.
Results: We developed a simple negative selection method to identify recombinant adenoviruses using colony PCR, which improves the efficiency of adenovirus recombination screening and packaging.
Conclusions: The negative selectionmethod to identify AdEasy adenovirus recombinants by colony PCR can identify the recombined colony within a short time-period, and maximally avoid damage to the recombinant plasmid by limiting recombination time, resulting in improved adenovirus packaging.
