Abstract

Several polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based methods are available for isolation of unknown genomic fragments. In the present study, a comparative evaluation of a few methods of ligation-mediated PCR methods and a ligation-independent one were made by isolating promoter fragment for N-methyltransferase gene involved in the caffeine biosynthetic pathway of Coffea canephora. The benefits of tertiary PCR and the effects of a 4-base cutting restriction endonuclease on the size of the PCR products obtained were demonstrated in one of the ligation-mediated PCR methods. The methods adopted in this study differed in the sizes of the 5'-flanking regions obtained. The efficiencies of various methods used reflect the inherent limitations of the PCR-based methods for isolation of unknown flanking regions.
