Muta-Prem™ Random Mutagenesis Kit is a reagent kit based on Error Prone PCR (epPCR), which introduces a certain probability of random mutations into the target gene fragment through PCR amplification.
Random mutagenesis of genes is an important method for studying the relationship between protein structure and function, as well as inhibiting, modifying, or even creating protein or enzyme activities. The epPCR method typically involves using an error-prone thermostable DNA polymerase for PCR amplification, thereby introducing random mutations into the target gene sequence. After introducing random mutations into the target gene sequence, it is highly likely to result in amino acid sequence mutations at the protein level, leading to proteins or enzymes with enhanced, diminished, or even lost activity. It can also generate new activities in proteins or enzymes.
For analyzing the relationship between protein structure and function, the ideal mutation would be one amino acid change per protein (1-2 nucleotide mutations). In the study of protein evolution, the ideal mutation would be 1-4 amino acid changes per protein (approximately 2-7 nucleotide mutations). When screening highly active proteins or enzymes from a mutation library, it is typically desired to have around 20 nucleotide mutations per gene.
The RND-Muta DNA Polymerase provided in this kit is a novel DNA polymerase specifically designed for error-prone PCR. When the recommended amount of Mutation enhancer is added to the supplied reaction buffer, it can introduce approximately 7.8 random mutations per kilobase of the target gene. These mutations are balanced between AT→GC and GC→AT directions, with a ratio of (AT→GC mutations) / (GC→AT mutations) = 1.06. It also introduces a suitable number of insertion and deletion mutations.
The amplified DNA fragments produced by this kit have sticky ends and can be directly used for conventional T-vector cloning.
This kit can amplify target fragments up to 6 kb in length.
Users have the flexibility to adjust the mutation rate of this kit according to their needs, making it more convenient to use. The kit provides Mutation enhancer (10X), and the mutation rate can be significantly influenced by altering the amount of Mutation enhancer used.
- PCR reactions are highly sensitive. When using RND-Muta DNA Polymerase for PCR amplification, be careful to avoid contamination of the template DNA with minute amounts, and it is recommended to include a no-template control (NTC) to account for background amplification.
- This product is intended for scientific research purposes by professionals only. It is not intended for clinical diagnosis or treatment, and should not be used for food or drugs. It should not be stored in regular residential areas.
- For your safety and health, please wear appropriate laboratory attire and disposable gloves when handling this product.
The minimum shelf life is 1 year at -20°C.
