Default home made EZ-Tn5-Nextera adapter complex?


Is it possible to mix equal molar of EZ-Tn5 transposase and the Nextera adapter to create a homebrew transposon?

It seems that the transposon in the Nextera kit contain 2 different adapter arms. But the conventional transposase and donor DNA complex should be 1 transposase + 1 DNA. So how did Epicentre prepare their transposon?

The transposon showed by Epicentre is mainly for mutagenesis. For NGS applications you load Ez-Tn5 as done for any other (Picelli et al, 2014 for example) using the P5/MErev and P7/MErev. You can do it separately, namely, Tn5 + Px/MErev, or together Tn5 + equimolar mixture of annealed P5/MErev and P7/MErev. In the Transpisition buffer the presence of Mg will induce dimerisation of Tn5-Px/MErevs and it becomes active.
