Fast Mutagenesis System

The method works  first by having primers anneal to the DNA template.  Mutant strands are then synthesized with 2×TransStart® FastPfu PCR SuperMix with high fidelity. In the next step, non-mutated parental plasmid (methylated plasmid) is digested in vitro with DMT enzyme and in vivo further digested within DMT Chemically Competent Cell.

• Mutation sites on both primers to improve mutation efficiency.

• Partially overlapping primers for exponential DNA amplification.

• Fast (4 kb/min) and high fidelity ( 54-fold fidelity as compared to EasyTaq® DNA Polymerase) 2xTransStart® FastPfu PCR SuperMix for DNA amplification.

• Double digestions (in vitro and in vivo) of parental plasmids to enhance mutation efficiency.


Competent Cell at -70°C for six months; others at -20°C for two years
