the enzyme DNA
isolated. DNA ligase binds together strands of DNA. Its discovery, with the
isolation of the first restriction
paved the way for the first recombinant
molecules to be created by Paul Berg in 1972. In the
recombinant DNA process, ligase bonds the
"sticky" ends of complimentary DNA strands
previously cut by a restriction enzyme.
