Abstract:

Transposon mutagenesis has been used to clone genes, to construct reporter gene fusions, to construct correlated physical and genetic maps of cloned DNA segments, to map entire bacterial genomes by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis, to construct conditional mutations with portable promoters, to introduce desired origins of conjugal transfer or replication into chromosomes and plasmids of interest, and to determine the sequence of large DNA regions without the need of sub-or deletion cloning. In this chapter, a subset of these applications and the corresponding experimental protocols are described. Region-directed mutagenesis usually involves the isolation of Tn5 insertion mutations in genes cloned into plasmids in , followed by the characterization of the mutant phenotype of this (heterologous) host or the organism of origin of the cloned genes after the reintroduction of the Tn5-mutated loci by gene replacement. The chapter focuses on the use of bacteriophage λ and conjugable narrow-host-range or conditionally replicating plasmid vectors to deliver Tn5 and its derivatives and describes experimental protocols that are commonly used to carry out the random mutagenesis of (predominantly gram-negative) organisms.
