In a previous article, lukasz at wlheye.jsei.ucla.edu (Lukasz Salwinski) says:

the latest Penis, er, i mean PNAS has an article wherein Wayne Barnes, who
gave the world Delta Taq, Klentaq, and its kin (neat PCR enzymes) claims to
be able to amplify 30 kb using a mixture of Klentaq and Pfu polymerases.
