Re: microsatellite instability

OK, another question: I can see how insertion/deletion can be detected by fragment analysis, but incorporation of a wrong nucleotide wouldn't cause change in the length of amplicon, so can that also be detected by fragment analysis?

Re: Codons are triplets, but what's a Singlet, Doublet, etc?

... code and catalyzing their own formation from polynucleotide templates. These proteins are assignment catalysts capable of modulating the rate of incorporation of different amino acids at the position of different codons. The starting point of the model is a polynucleotide based polypeptide construction ...

Mastermix in PCR

... the concentration of MgCl2. The higher the concentration of the MgCl2, the more active the enzyme is. As the concentration of MgCl2 increases, the incorporation of dNTPs increases. However, it also increases the the error rate - the rate at which an incorrect dNTP is incorporated into the resulting ...

Do the simplest bacteria have ribosomes and helicase?

Daemach, you must check chemical reactions in RNA synthesis before asking any more questions. Here's a link with a pic of actual nucleotide incorporation into oligo chain: http://sandwalk.blogspot.com/2007/03/how-rna-polymerase-works-chemical.html Thing is, A, C, G and T/U in DNA/RNA molecule ...

Re: how to add a "A" at PCR product ends

... add ONLY buffer, template, dATP, and Taq. Then it's absolutely impossible for Taq to add non-A bases on the ends. Even if your efficiency is low, incorporation of the A will occur at a MUCH higher rate than if you used raw PCR product containing all 4 trinucleotides.
