Sticky ends are double-stranded DNA fragments with each strand different in length due to the uneven cut in a restriction site's palindromic sequence. The DNA strands undergo hydrolysis in these sites as catalyzed by restriction enzymes.
The function of these restriction enzymes are well known in cloning applications as this enzyme allows easy integration of a particular DNA sequence to the original DNA strand to introduce one or more additional traits.
You digest DNA from the frog Xenopus laevis with HindIII that produces sticky DNA ends. You can ligate your DNA to : (check all that apply)
A. HindIII sticky DNA ends from Xenopus laevis
B. EcoRI sticky DNA ends from Xenopus laevis
C. blunt DNA ends from bacteria
D. HindIII sticky DNA ends from bacteria
