Long product amplification (1598bp)
Posted 19 May 2009 - 03:10 AM
I'd like to know your opinion about a PCR with a desired product of 1598bp. Should I use elongase or even Taq would be able to do the amplification? What about the PCR reaction as far as it concerns the timing? How long should the extension step last? What about MgCl?
Thank you very much in advance..

"Standard" Pfu needs about 1 min for 500 bp, whereas Taq only needs 1 min for 1 kb!
