Zebrafish BAC (Keygene)
The Daniokey BAC library was created by the Ronald Plasterk Laboratory and Keygene N.V. The library provides approximately 10x coverage of the Zebrafish genome.
The library was created from the Tübingen zebrafish strain male testis DNA, provided by R. Geisler. The DNA was partially digested with HindIII. The DNA was cloned into the pIndigoBAC-536 vector, in E.coli DH10B.
There are 104,064 clones with an average insert size of around 175kb. The Keygene library also contains ligations with extra large inserts of up to 230kb.
Source BioScience offers the complete clone set of 288 384-well microtitre plates or individual clones, for research purposes only. We can also make subsets of your chosen clones from the collection. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
To examine the genomic organisation of genes in zebrafish.
The use of the resource is limited to research purposes. The collection is subject to the following MTA and our clone terms and conditions.
Use the NCBI Clone Finder tool, Zebrafish Ensembl or the ZFIN database to access the annotated zebrafish genome or go to the Sanger Institute for more information, and Zebrafish Vega for manually annotated zebrafish genome sequences.
Due to MTA requirements, Daniokey BAC clones should be ordered online using our website search below, using the clone ID format e.g. DKEY-252L8 or zk252L8 to search for individual clones.
The entire library can be ordered below:
||Zebrafish BAC (Keygene)
The DNA was partially digested with HindIII. The DNA was cloned into the pIndigoBAC-536 vector, in E.coli DH10B.
Species: Danio rerio
Library: Daniokey BAC
Host: E. coli DH10B
Vector Type: BAC
Vector cloning site: EcoR1
“pIndigoBAC536 has the same sequence as pBeloBAC11, except that the internal EcoR1 site was destroyed so that the unique Eco R1 site in the multiple cloning site can be used for cloning, and a random point mutation was selected for in the lac Z gene that provides darker blue colony color on X-gal/IPTG selection. The GenBank accession number for pBeloBAC11 is U51113."
While pIndigoBAC-536 is a widely used vector for BAC libraries from a huge variety of species, the actual sequence has not been published. According Luo et al. *

Protocols / Clone Handling
Plates: contain LB broth with 7.5% glycerol and chloramphenicol. These are sent on Dry Ice. These should be stored at -70°C.
Clones: are streaked onto LB agar containing chloramphenicol (12.5µg/ml)
To use: re-streak the clone onto the same agar type, in such a way as to obtain single colonies. Incubate at 37°C overnight. Clones can be grown in LB broth + chloramphenicol, and glycerol added after growth to a concentration of 25% for long-term storage at -70°C.
These clones are for research use only.
