.... (hope you have no longer any problems with mutagenesis as in a post some
6 years back but ..) I strongly prefer Phusion (=highest fidelity
commercially available polymerase) PCR for mutagenesis. Piece of cake easy
for up to ~20 kb plasmids :) ...

I never think of the future. It comes soon enough.

Actually, I believe the highest fidelity is PfuUltra Fusion.
Basically, Stratagene stole Finnzyme's idea, somehow
managed to circumvent IP (patent) protection and ended
up making a better product.

on Tue, 12 Aug 2008, DK <[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]> penned the
following literary masterpiece:
MJ Bioworks (prior to MJ's downfall over the thermal cycler infringement
with ABI) patented Sac 7/Sso7 (7kd non-specific ds DNA binding protein
from Sulfolobus) as a fusion with a DNA polymerase. They then specified
in another patent that one had to have various aa's at positions a ... z
in the Sso sequence in order to bind DNA.
Stratagene basically altered every other amino acid else bar those and
after lots of screening identified a modified Sso7 that worked as well
as the wt Sso7 in a fusion.
All fun and games :-)
I love deadlines. I especially like the whooshing noise they make as
they go flying by.
