    Retention of the d Z :d P pair in products generated by 16.6 theoretical PCR cycles (using Taq ) as a function of pH. Left : Seven cycles of ‘analytical primer extension’ by Vent (exo − ) with dZTPαS, dPTP and dNTPs converts 5′- 32 P labeled primer (P-RS-S16) to FLP with a phosphorothioate linkage joining nucleotides 25 and 26 (arising via incorporation of dZTPαS opposite retained d P in the amplicon) at pH 8.5. Right : Digestion of FLP using Exo III (20 U, final concentration 0.5 U/µl), giving pause bands where an phosphorothioate linker is present, either from dZTPαS incorporation (expected between nucleotides 25 and 26) or from the synthetic primer (between nucleotides 16 and 17). Control (C) used synthetic templates (containing 100% d Z :d P pair at position 26). Lanes Rf51, Rf21 and Rf25 hold reference 51-, 21- and 25-mers. Noticeably stronger are Exo III digestion bands indicating greater retention of d Z :d P pair at pH 7.8 and 8.0 than at 7.5 or 8.5.

    Incorporation of dPTPαS (presented as its pure S p diastereoisomer) or dZTPαS (presented as a 1:1 diastereomeric mixture) opposite template d Z or d P (respectively) to generate oligonucleotide products that have phosphorothioate linkages resistant to exonuclease digestion. Left: Running start extensions (by Taq and 9°N DNA polymerases, as indicated) of 5′- 32 P labeled 21-mer primers having a phosphorothioate linkage between nucleotides 16 and 17 and Z-Temp and P-Temp. Right: Exo III (100 U, final concentration 2.5 U/µl) digestion of full-length products (FLP) containing phosphorothioate linkages (digestion times indicated). A 26-mer band indicates pausing of Exo III digestion at phosphorothioate linkage arising via incorporation of dPTPαS or dZTPαS opposite d Z or d P (both at positions 26 in their respective templates). This shows that both dPTPαS and dZTPαS were incorporated opposite their partners. A 17-mer band appears only if Exo III digests through the 25–26 linkage, either because misincorporation at an earlier step prevents the respective thiotriphosphates from incorporating a phosphorothioate linkage to join nucleotides 25 and 26, or because Exo III has digested through a 25-26 phosphorothioate linkage having an Exo III-sensitive S P stereochemistry. Digestion will pause at the phophorothioate joining nucleotides 16 and 17 arising from the chemically synthesized primer (and therefore having both R P and S P stereochemistries). Extra pausing bands (between 51- and 26-mers) suggest that 9°N incorporates small amounts of dZTPαS opposite template d G . Low-weight molecular products arise by digestion through the S P phosphorothioates joining nucleotides 16 and 17. Lanes P- Taq and P-9°N indicate that extension was done with Taq or 9°N (respectively), and dPTPαS (in both). Lanes Z- Taq and Z-9°N indicate that extension was done with Taq or 9°N (respectively), and dZTPαS (in both).

    Retention of the d Z :d P pair in products generated by the indicated number of theoretical rounds of PCR using Taq , Vent (exo − ) and Deep Vent (exo − ) at pH 8.0. Left : FLP are formed by extension by 9°N polymerase of 5′- 32 P labeled primer (P-RS-S16) with unlabeled primer (Z-RS) and dZTPαS, dPTP and dNTPs using PCR amplicons generated by Taq , Vent (exo − ) and DV (exo − ) as templates (shown in Figure 7 ). Right : PAGE (20%) resolution of products from Exo III (20 U, final concentration 0.5 U/µl) digestion of the FLP from Left . A band indicates presence of a phosphorothioate linkage, either arising through the incorporation of dZTPαS opposite d P at position 26, or from the synthetic primer joining nucleotidies 16 and 17, or through misincorporation of d Z :d P pair during PCR. Controls (lanes marked C) are: (i) C, incubation without 9°N; the absence of extended primer indicates successful removal of Taq polymerase (lane 1, Figure 7 ) by the QIAquick Nucleotide Remove Kit. (ii) C −, extension by 9°N using synthetic templates containing d Z and d P (at position 26) with standard (oxygen-containing) dZTP and dPTP; absent a phosphorothioate linkage in the extension, Exo III degradation gives a 17-mer due to presence of a phosphorothioate only from the synthetic primer. (iii) C +, extension using synthetic templates as before, but with dZTPαS, generating phosphorothioate linkage in the product, Exo III degradation gives a 26-mer due to the phosphorothioate linkage arising from the incorporation of dZTPαS opposite d P in the synthetic template. P ( 21 ) indicates the 21-mer, 5′- 32 P labeled primer (P-RS-S16).

    Selective and quantitative amplification of targets. ( A ) Selective amplification of DNA flanking Tn insertions. Genomic DNA of 16 individual mutants were used to amplify DNA fragments until nearby Taq I restriction sites, and resolved on a sequencing gel. The mutants analyzed were: lane 1, SSA1 (V45B4); lane 2, YDJ1 (V6A2); lane 3, DDR48 (V6G5); lane 4, SSA2 (V18E7); lane 5, SSA3 (V41F1); lane 6, SSA4 (V5E8); lane 7, SSB1 (V23F11); lane 8, SSB2 (V32E7); lane 9, HSP35 (V18D3); lane 10, SSA4 (V3B8); lane 11, SOD2 (V4D11); lane 12, SSB2 (V47A3); lane 13, UBI4 (V36G6); lane 14, TPS2 (V2C2); lane 15, HSP104 (V8D8); lane 16, HSP104 (V22A9). Two bands each are seen for most of the mutants, consistent with specific amplification of DNA from both sides of each Tn insertion. ( B ) Quantitative amplification of targets, demonstrated by a reconstruction experiment. Ten different Tn insertion mutants were grown individually and then mixed together in equal proportions to obtain a pool of eight mutants (pool A, lane 1) and two mutants (pool B, lane 2). These two pools were then mixed at different ratios such that the abundance of the two mutants from pool B, with respect to the other mutants, was the same (lane 3) or was decreased 2-fold (lane 4), 4-fold (lane 5), 8-fold (lane 6) or 16-fold (lane 7). Genomic DNA was isolated from all the pools immediately and processed to amplify the targets. Equal volumes of PCR products were loaded, except for lane 2 where it was one-fifth of other lanes. While the intensity of the bands from eight mutants remained constant in lanes 3–7, that of two mutants (arrows) decreased in proportion to the abundance of the mutants in the pools, confirming quantitative amplification of the targets.

The amount of oligonucleotide loaded to mark the position where the primer runs (lane 1) was less than for other lanes in the gel; ( b ) Exo III digestion of the products of 2-min primer extension reactions using the indicated diastereomers (S or R) of alpha-thio-dPTP (from Figure 5 a). Each primer extension product was purified with a QIAquick column and digested with 20 Units of Exo III for the indicated times. The control shows the degradation of 5′- 32 P-labeled primer Z-SS-S19 (25mer) in a duplex with unlabeled Z-51-Temp, establishing that these are degraded by Exo III.

    Principle of OLA-based SNP genotyping. (a) For each polymorphism, a set of three genotyping oligos are allowed to anneal to denatured PCR product (blue) in the presence of Taq DNA ligase. Ligation of up- and downstream oligos occurs only if there is a perfect match to template. Upstream oligos are color-coded gray (M13 forward amplification primer sequence), red/green (a pair of barcode sequences), and black (assay-specific sequence flanking the query SNP). The downstream oligo is 5'-phosphorylated, and color-coded gray (reverse complemented sequence of the M13 reverse amplification primer), and black (assay-specific flanking sequence). (b) Addition of common M13 primers (gray) allows amplification of all ligated products. (c) After arraying amplified OLA products, membranes are hybridized with probes complementary to the barcode sequences. Probes can be fluorescently labeled with infrared (IR) fluors and both alleles hybridized simultaneously, or radiolabeled and hybridized sequentially.

    ( A ) Loss of primer upon incubation with dATP, dCTP, dGTP and TTP, trap and Family A polymerases. The extension of the primer by the first nucleotide, dCTP opposite dG, is observed least with Taq, more so with Bst and most with Klenow fragment (exo – ). A small loss of extended DNA is observed after the addition of each subsequent nucleotide. Due to the small amount of primer initially extended by 1 nt by Taq, very little full-length product is observed. ( B ) Loss of DNA primer extension after addition of each nucleotide with c3dATP, dCTP, dGTP and TTP. Again, extension of the primer by the first nucleotide, dGTP opposite dC, is observed least with Taq, more so with Bst and most with Klenow fragment (exo – ). The relative loss of extended DNA with each subsequent nucleotide addition does not differ between polymerases.

    ( A ) Schematic showing the use of PspOMI digestion to evaluate the retention rate of Z : P pair during the PCR amplification of DNA containing a single Aegis nucleoside (see Table 4 for the sequence of oligonucleotides used). First, the Z -template (Temp-R-72- Z ) was amplified for 30 cycles in the presence of dNTPs, d Z TP and d P TP using Taq DNA polymerase. The final amplicon duplexes contained two kinds of products: one retaining the Z : P pair (product 2), the other misincorporating dC:dG pair (product 1). The product mixtures (including product 1 and 2) were then digested by PspOMI, and the ratio between the amount of radio-labeled 72-meroligonucleotides (full-length product, FLP) and all the oligonucleotides [including 72-merand 39-mer(digested fragment)] reflects the retention rate of Z : P pair in recognition sequence during PCR amplification.

    Schematics of Cas9n/gRNA target sequence specific fluorescent labeling for whole genome DNA mapping. The Cas9n fluorescent nick-labeling system uses a guide RNA (gRNA) to direct the Cas9 nuclease to a targeted site. The gRNA is composed of a trans-activating crRNA (tracrRNA) and a crRNA that contains a 20 nucleotide sequence that is complementary to the site of interest. A mutation in the RuvC-like domain nuclease alters the Cas9 enzyme to make only a single cut three nucleotides upstream of a protospacer adjacent motif (PAM) of the 3′–5′ strand of the target DNA. In the nick labeling method, after Cas9n D10A generates a nick, fluorophores are directly incorporated to the nick sites using Taq DNA Polymerase. These fluorophores can be detected using fluorescence microscopy.
