This paper discusses an experiment that used recombinant DNA technology and explains that the hypothesis for the experiment is that, by using recombinant DNA technology, specific DNA fragments can be cloned, in this case from a mouse liver cell, by differential centrifugation to obtain high purity DNA fractions. The paper describes in detail the materials and methodology of the experiment as well as the results and the calculations. The paper concludes that the experiment supports the hypothesis by the fact that five colonies were created, which contained the specific 2.0 DNA fragment, signaling that the bacteria contained the desired insert-vector molecule.

From the Paper:

"Western Blotting of the samples was performed also performed. There are about 1012 antibody molecules in the immune system. The major function of the immune system is to protect the being. Antibodies are produced when outside organisms enter the body. The antibodies join with the foreign molecules and neutralize them. Antigens are the molecules that cause antibody production and are usually similar to proteins. Epitopes are the features that are recognized by the antibody."
