Dear Nelio, 

How may these components be utilized for site directed mutagensis? 

But I am more courious about their use for random mutagensis!
Do you have more information on that? Do they influence the fidelity 
of polymerases or chemically modify (or interclate) the DNA? 
What kind of chemicals like these do you know?
I just remeber some secondary compunds found in tropical liches (from 
Brasil e.g) looking like they may insert into or attach to DNA.

All the best,
