    1. The highly efficient Ultra competent DH5α cells for transformation were prepared by Inoue method (Inoue et al., 1990). Briefly, a single bacterial colony was picked from LB agar plate, inoculated into 10 ml LB medium and incubated overnight at 37°C temperature with 200 rpm shaking. Following day, 1% of the pre-inoculum was sub-cultured in 100 ml LB-broth and incubated at 18°C until OD600 of 0.5-0.6 was reached. Culture was then kept on ice for 10 min with constant shaking. Cells were pelleted by centrifugation at 5000 rpm at 4°C for 10 min. Pellet was resuspended in 40 ml of ice-cold Inoue buffer. Bacterial suspension was kept on ice for 30 min, re-spun at 2000g at 4°C for 10 min. Pellet was resuspended in 8 ml of TB bufferin which 560 μl DMSO was added and left on ice for 10 min. Finally, 100 μl aliquots were made by snap freezing in liquid nitrogen and stored at -80°C
