Long-range PCR with a DNA polymerase fusion.

Abstract:

Proofreading DNA polymerase fusions offer several advantages for long-range PCR, including faster run times and higher fidelity compared with Taq-based enzymes. However, their use so far has been limited to amplification of small to mid-range targets. In this article, we present a modified protocol for using a DNA polymerase fusion to amplify genomic targets exceeding 20 kb in length. This procedure overcomes several limitations of Taq blends, which up until recently, were the only option for long-range PCR. With a proofreading DNA polymerase fusion, high-molecular-weight amplicon can be generated and analyzed in a single day, and a significant proportion is expected to be error-free.

Using Polbase tables:

Sorting:

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).

Filtering:

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.
