Abstract

The study of the role of different genes in Rhizobium leguminosarum requires the generation of mutants by homologous recombination. In this communication we describe a novel approach to obtain deletion mutants of genes in Rhizobium using Gateway TM Cloning technology (Invitrogen) and a new vector (pK18-attR), both conjugative and Rhizobium specific, that carries the recombination tails of Gateway system. This tool is a new alternative to the classic approach based on cloning using restriction enzymes. The first step consists of designing directed oligonucleotides with specific tails for isolating recombination fragments and a resistance marker cassette to an antibiotic by PCR. The three inserts are cloned by homologous recombination in three specific vectors, in a single step. The last step consists of multisite-directed recombination of the three donor vectors to the pK18-attR destination vector. After recombination, this vector loses the ccdB gene, whose expression results in synthesis of a DNA gyrase that is lethal to carrier cells and thus guarantees the effectiveness in obtaining clones that carry the homologous construction to the subsequent recombination in Rhizobium
