COMMENT Since not all genes are active in every cell, a cDNA library is usually much smaller than a gene library. If it is known which type of cell makes the desired protein (e.g., only pancreatic cells make insulin), screening the cDNA library from such cells for the gene of interest is a much easier task than screening a gene library<sup>1</sup>.<HR><sup>1</sup> gene library [ IATE:1073551 ]
fr banque d'ADNc
DEFINITION Les molécules d'ADNc sont integrées dans un plasmide qui pénètre dans l'hôte qui se divise, multipliant les séquences en un grand nombre de copies (clonage).Une banque d'ADNc sera représentative des séquences d'ARNc exprimées dans la cellule-type dont elle est dérivée REFERENCE Génétique,p.220
