I have a protocole to do error prone PCR which works very well. I have been
randomly mutagenised a 2Kb gene with this protocol (the number of mutations
is beetwen one and five per fragment)
I used :
7mM MgCl2
0,5mM Mncl2
1mM d(C/T)TP
0,2mM d(A/G)TP
2,5 Units of taq polymerase
10uM each oligonucleotides.
(Becarfull the choice of buffer is very very important, in my hand onle CETUS
(from Perkin Elme) buffer works.
the elongation time is lowest in these conditions approxymatively 1.5min per
