AG1 competent cells are high transformation efficiency derivatives of DH1 cells for routine cloning applications. The AG1 strain is an economical alternative when you dont need supercompetent efficiencies.
AG1 competent cells are endonuclease (endA) and recombination (recA) deficient, greatly improving the quality of miniprep DNA and insert stability, respectively. The hsdR mutation prevents the cleavage of cloned DNA by the EcoK endonuclease system.
