Thus, while the assay is extremely sensitive for detection of defined mutations, results obtained with the BEAMING method for mutation frequency at a single position may not necessarily reflect the fidelity properties of an enzyme for much larger sequence spaces.

While reported fidelity values differ among research groups and assay methods, there is a general consensus that a relatively low-fidelity enzyme such polymedase Taq has a fidelity value in the range and higher fidelity enzymes have values that are in the range usually reported as mutations per bp per template doubling.

Because polymerase errors are known to be strongly dependent on DNA sequence context reviewed in [ 12 ]ideally one would use polymerzse large set of DNA sequences when measuring enzyme fidelity. An example of research that has been transformed by developments in systems biology is the cloning of expressed open reading frames ORFs from cDNA substrates.

With the creation and continual refinements of databases of genomic sequences, cloning now poolymerase takes place on a much larger scale. We have measured the error rates for 6 DNA polymerases commonly used in PCR applications, including 3 polymerases typically used for cloning applications requiring high fidelity.

By observing these conditions and following protocol instructions as accurately as possible, you will increase the chances of optimum product performance, subsequently improving the likelihood of a successful experiment with this kit. Our cloning pipeline uses recombinational insertion of purified PCR products into a plasmid vector using the Gateway cloning system, a polymeraase widely used for high-throughput cloning studies reviewed in [ 17 ].

Cloning of target s then typically resulted in further refinements of pathway details and often identification of new cloning targets. A summary of the 6 DNA polymerases used in this study is presented in Table 1.

Expected product sizes range from 1. Error rate values for six PCR enzymes included in this study are presented.

The fold-amplification is used to determine the number of template doublings that occurred during PCR. Since our input plasmid DNA templates were prepared using the Gateway system, the target genes of interest are all flanked by att recombination sequences.

For the study of Phusion fidelity, the PCR used a different buffer than the one employed here, which according to the vendor does result in a fold lower error rate. Due to the numerous methodological and analytical differences among studies, values are often reported as ranges. Ask our Biotech team to upload them!

From the standpoint of use in a large-scale cloning project, any one of these enzymes would be acceptable, judged on the criteria of minimizing error rate. Mutation spectra are reported, with the 3 high fidelity enzymes displaying broadly similar types of mutations. As an early workhorse in PCR technology, Taq polymerase has been studied extensively for purposes of fidelity determination.

Back Lens Cleaning Tissue. Template for PCR reactions was miniprep plasmid DNA, with each plasmid template containing a unique target sequence of known sequence and size, ranging polymwrase 0.

For all mutant clones produced by PfuPhusion Hot Start, and Pwo polymerases, samples were resequenced to rule out sample processing or DNA sequencing as a source of error. The mod insert was cloned in between the att sites of a pDONR vector, allowing the use of a common primer set for all plasmids.

Figure 1 shows gel images for a representative set of PCR reactions for each enzyme.

Error Rate Comparison during Polymerase Chain Reaction by DNA Polymerase

Based on minimizing PCR errors, Pfu polymerase, Pwo polymerase, and Phusion all produce acceptably low levels of mutations. This precipitation step can be performed in well plate format, which is a requirement when the number of samples becomes large.


For these enzymes, transition mutations predominate, with little bias observed for type of transition. To determine error rates and observe mutational spectra for a variety of DNA polymerases used in PCR cloning, we directly sequenced clones produced from 94 different plasmid templates.

This is a drawback to our assay, and despite the fact that DNA sequencing costs continue to drop screening bacteria is still a far more economical method of interrogating a large number of clones. For larger-scale cloning projects, DNA sequencing using cell culture is advantageous because of the saving in time and resources relative to purifying plasmid DNA.

Representative agarose gel electrophoresis images of products of PCR amplification of 24 unique DNA targets, using six different enzymes. Abstract As larger-scale cloning projects become more prevalent, there is an increasing need for comparisons among high fidelity DNA polymerases used for PCR amplification.

This value is in excellent agreement with other published values for this enzyme, and the relatively high variance suggests that calculated error values differing by up to 2-fold are probably not significant relative to the experimental noise. Furthermore, the references listed are meant to provide representative, but not necessarily exhaustive, documentation for error rate values.

Downstream Lab Experiments After use, it may be necessary to carry out further experiments. This is consistent with previous findings demonstrating very high fidelity PCR amplification for these enzymes. Because the types of mutations we observe are consistent with previously reported mutational spectra for other Family B polymerases, we believe our method has detected polymerase errors in a bias-free fashion.

In addition, that study uses the BEAMING method, an extremely sensitive flow cytometric protocol that screens large numbers of beads that contain PCR products for the presence of nucleotide variations. With the rapid pace of developments in systems biology-based research, for example, genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics, larger-scale biological discovery projects are becoming more common.
