A single-stage polymerase-based protocol for the introduction of deletions and insertions without subcloning
- 165 Downloads
A single-stage polymerase-based procedure is described that allows extensive modifications of DNA. The version described here uses the QuikChange Site-Directed Mutagenesis System kit supplied by Stratagene. The original protocol is replaced by a single-stage method in which linear production of complementary strands is accomplished in separate single primer reactions. This has proved effective in introducting insertions and deletions into large gene/vector combinations without subcloning.
