A rapid and efficient one-tube PCR-based mutagenesis technique using Pfu DNA polymerase.


A rapid method for efficiently generating site-directed mutations on a clean sequence background is described. This modification of the megaprimer PCR mutagenesis approach can be performed in one tube in less than 4.5 hours, and does not require purification of intermediate products. High fidelity of DNA sequence replication is obtained by employing Pfu DNA polymerase and limiting the total number of amplification cycles to 30. The mutagenesis efficiency of the procedure is high enough to allow rapid, direct identification of mutants by restriction digest or sequencing techniques.

Using Polbase tables:


Tables may be sorted by clicking on any of the column titles. A second click reverses the sort order. <Ctrl> + click on the column titles to sort by more than one column (e.g. family then name).


It is also possible to filter the table by typing into the search box above the table. This will instantly hide lines from the table that do not contain your search text.
