1). The overhanging bases from the two freshly cut ends are complementary in sequence, so under the right conditions, they can pair up to form new hydrogen bonds. ” Another bacterial enzyme, known as DNA ligase, can recreate the phosphate bonds of the DNA backbone across a pair of rejoined sticky ends, effectively pasting together a new DNA molecule. 2). 1. The EcoRI restriction enzyme produces sticky ends. ) a piece of SV40 virus and a piece of Escherichia coli chromosomal DNA (Jackson et al. 1972).

The chimeric plasmid are then put back into a bacterial cell using a process called transformation—basically utilizing the bacteria’s natural ability to take up plasmid DNA from a solution. 4). Then the bacteria are harvested and large quantities of plasmid with cloned DNA can be purified. The interesting DNA fragment can be removed from the plasmid DNA by cutting again with a restriction enzyme.

These three-dimensional (3D) structures can bring distant regions of a DNA molecule into close proximity, so that proteins bound to these sites may interact with the proteins bound to the promoter region. These distant sites on the DNA that may effect transcription are known as enhancers. The total set of DNA binding proteins that interact with promoters and enhancers are known as transcription factors, and the specific DNA sequences to which they bind are called transcription factor binding sites.
