Competent Cells and Transformation

GoldBio offers an extensive collection of efficient chemically competent and electrocompetent cells with high transformation efficiencies to match your specific downstream applications: general cloning, protein expression, library construction, and many more.

  • GoldBio's wide range of chemically competent and electrocompetent cells are optimized to provide lot-to-lot consistency and up to 10X higher transformation efficiency.
  • Our enhanced recovery medium (SOC) formulation accompanies all of GoldBio's competent cells.
  • We carry multiple Endonuclease I-deficient (endA1) competent bacterial cell strains to suit your cloning needs and ensure your transformations result in high quality and yield of plasmid DNA.
  • Choose from E. coli strains with different selectable markers and screening options including the classic blue/white selection.
  • GoldBio cells are ideal for distinct downstream applications from routine cloning/subcloning and protein expression to the more complex library construction, and cloning of difficult targets.
  • Our electrocompetent Agrobacterium cells contain an efficient T-DNA binary system for genetic material transfer into the host plant cells.
  • GoldBio's amber suppressor (SupE) and non-amber suppressor (MC1061F\’) strains are ideal for phage display library screening.

Electroporation and Electrocompetent Cells FAQs:

What is electroporation?

Electroporation is a technique commonly used in transformation assays to introduce DNA into an electrocompetent cell. During electroporation a transient current or electrical pulse is applied to cells that have been suspended in a solution. The current momentarily increases the permeability of the cell's membrane, creating holes (a pathway) that allow DNA (plasmids) to pass through and enter the cell. Generally, electroporation can be more effective than chemical transformation.

When should I use electrocompetent cells?

Electrocompetent cells have a higher transformation efficiency than chemically competent cells. The use of electrocompetent cells facilitate the transformation of large plasmids, including BACs (Bacterial Artificial Chromosomes), that might otherwise be difficult to transform using chemical transformation.

How do I prevent arcing during electroporation?

Arcing during electroporation can be avoided by making sure there are no air bubbles in the cell/DNA solution prior to electroporation. Also, desalt your DNA since the presence of conductive ions in the solution will cause arcing and electroporation failure. In addition, ensure that your equipment, including the cuvette is properly cleaned and in good condition.

CC-106-15x50 15 x 50 μL $ 599.00   $ 480.00

Description

GoldBio’s AGL-1 Agrobacterium chemically competent cells allow you to obtain high transformation efficiency in applications such as gDNA or cDNA library construction. Our AGL-1 strain harbors the C58 chromosomal backbone with an insertion mutation in its recA recombination gene. This mutation stabilizes recombinant plasmids. AGL-1 also has rifampicin and carbenicillin resistance genes in the genome useful for selection. A functional T-DNA binary system can be built using our AGL-1 strains as the T-DNA region has been deleted from the Ti plasmid pTiBO542 and instead it has a binary vector containing the missing T-region. The binary system makes possible to transfer genetic material into a host plant S genome. Therefore, our system is often used for Agrobacterium-mediated transformation in mono and dicotyledonous species such as Arabidopsis thaliana, maize, and other plants.

Description

GoldBio’s GV3101 Agrobacterium chemically competent cells allow you to obtain high transformation efficiency in applications such as gDNA or cDNA library construction. Our GV3101 strain harbors the C58 chromosomal backbone containing rifampicin resistance and the Ti plasmid pmp90 (pTiC58DT-DNA) harboring the gentamicin resistance. A functional T-DNA binary system can be built using our GV3101 strains as the T-DNA region has been deleted in the Ti plasmid and instead has a binary vector containing the missing T-region. The binary system makes possible to transfer genetic material into a host plant’s genome. Our system is often used for Agrobacterium-mediated transformation in mono and dicotyledonous species such as Arabidopsis thaliana, tobacco, potato, soybeans and corn.
