Concept and method for the efficient design and production of biogenic materials


The OVTP allows for sequential-directional ligation (SDL) and cyclic-ligation (CL) of DNA-tectons

Sequential-directional ligation (SDL) and Cyclic-Ligation (CL) for multimerisation and defined arrangement of DNA-tectons
I. Schematic illustration of the SDL process (on the left). The DNA-tectons prepared from the identical OVTP vectors by sequential action of the restriction enzymes SacI and EarI (donor). By the sequential action of the restriction enzymes BspQI and SacI the same plasmid is used as an
acceptor for compatible DNA-tectons.

II. In order to generate repetitive protein multimers a CL reaction was performed by alternating reaction temperatures with alternating enzymatic activities as a "one tube reaction" (on the right). OVTP vectors with different DNA-tectons were used as donors and acceptors for the preparation and insertion of other DNA-tectons. Tectons were added serial to each cycle as an uniform fraction or parallel as a mixed fraction at each cycle to generate homogeneous or randomly configurated complex DNA-tectons.
Combinations of defined preparations of OVTP vectors in combination with fitting DNA-tectons allows for the precise composition of DNA-tectons
within the OVTP vector.
Resulting vectors could subsequently serve as acceptor or donor vector for further combinations on DNA-level or for protein-tecton expression.
