~300BP. Maybe there is secondary structure lies in that region. I tried
several ways to solve this problem. Adding DMSO, increasing denature
temperature, using different primers. But it still does not work.

Is your DNA clean? No protein remaining? Have you tried to run the DNA out
on a gel first to make sure your DNA length is good? The fragment isn't
methylated? Tried increasing the time for the elongation phase?
