Library Preparation Details

Description:mRNA was purified from plasma cell leukemia patient's peripheral blood containing >95% myeloma. An oligo d(T)18 primer containing XhoI restriction site was used to prime first strand synthesis using M-MLV reverse transcriptase. To protect the cDNAs from XhoI digestion in subsequent cloning step, the nucleotide analogue 5-methyl-dCTP was added to the nucleotide mixture and [a-32P]dATP was added to monitor the quantity and quality of first strand synthesis. After second-strand synthesis and blunting of cDNA termini, EcoRI adapters were ligated, followed by kinase treatment and digestion with XhoI. The cDNAs were then size-fractionated using Sephacryl S-500 column and then ligated into EcoRI and XhoI digested Lambda Zap Express vector. The ligation product was packaged using Gigapack II packaging extract. The library had primary titre of approx. 1x106. Clones from the primary library were randomly selected for single pass sequencing.
