Site-specific mutagenesis using asymmetric polymerase chain reaction and a single mutant primer.


A method is described for preparing site-specific mutants using a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) based protocol. The protocol requires a single mutant primer, and has been used to introduce mutations into DNA fragments ranging in size from 200 bp to 1569 bp in length in the GM-CSF, beta-actin, human growth hormone and erythropoietin genes.
