Gene cloning in lactic acid bacteria (LAB) is crucial in term to increase their ability to hydrolyze milk protein such as proline. This proline could be hydrolyzed when the LAB undergone cloning on their genome coding the enzyme. The cloning process need technology to separate/isolate the gene capable of proline hydrolyze. Isolation of DNA containing prolidase gene, need DNA genome cutting. After isolation of DNA gene coding prolidase, it is then recombined with other bacterial DNA to obtained recombinant gene. The process need ligase. In gene cloning, knowledge of cutting and joining the DNA should be understood.

The enzyme take the role in cutting and joining the DNA were restriction endonuclease and ligase. The restriction enzyme function (1) in inserting a gen into plasmid contained in a vector during gene cloning, and gene expression experiment, and (2) to identify the gene. It is important that the researcher already have standardized  sequenced gene as control. The DNA contained target gene was cut using some restriction enzyme, then the gene was arrayed in electrophoresis gel using southern blot technique. DNA sequence was elucidated by addition of ethydium bromide. To identify/characterize the isolated gene, this DNA sequence was encountered the control DNA.
