2), can all be examined by molecular techniques. In toxicology, this may include toxic effects on these processes or the role of the processes in the mechanism of toxic action. 1 Molecular Cloning The basic principle of molecular cloning is the insertion of a DNA segment into a suitable vector. The vector is an autonomously replicating DNA molecule, and the inserted DNA segment may be as large as a gene or as small as a few nucleotides. 3). 2 cDNA and Genomic Libraries cDNA or genomic libraries are collections of DNA fragments incorporated into a recombinant vector and transformed into an appropriate host cell.

Hodgson. New York: Wiley, 2004. the formation of a colored insoluble product of an enzymatic reaction, the enzyme, such as alkaline phosphatase or horseradish peroxidase, being covalently linked to the secondary antibody. Immunoaffinity purification involves the use of antibodies, bound to an insoluble matrix, for chromatography. The advantage of this method is that it is highly specific, often permitting purification in a single step. Immunoprecipitation is a variant of immunoaffinity purification and is a means to remove a protein from a complex mixture in a highly specific manner.
