How are restriction enzymes used to make both recombinant DNA and transgenic organisms?

1 Answer

The restriction enzymes cut specific DNA points and helped in inserting the genes into transgenic animals.


  1. The restriction enzymes have the property of cleaving DNA molecules at a specific sequences.
  2. This restriction enzymes are used to cut DNA sequences at specific points of nucleotides.
  3. Some foreign genes are inserted into plasmids to make recombinant DNA.
  4. The engineered plasmids are inserted into bacteria for producing transgenic organisms.
