Wittrup: Site directed mutagenesis by QuikChange

From OpenWetWare

Site directed mutagenesis by QuikChange


  • PfuTurbo(TM) DNA polymerase (2.5 U/uL)
  • 10x reaction buffer
  • Dpn I restriction enzyme (10 U/uL)
  • dNTP mix
  • Epicurian Coli(R) XL1-Blue supercompetent cells

  • your primer 1
  • your primer 2
  • your plasmid


Use protocol for Stratagene's Quikchange mutagenesis. Manual at: [1]

You will have to register to access this protocol.

Protocol notes:

- Add extra extension time to increase efficiency (1.5 to 2 min per kb). - Can do multiple QC's simultaneously by adding both primers to the PCR and sequencing more clones.
