Immobilized MutS-Mediated Error Removal of Microchip-Synthesized DNA

Part of the Methods in Molecular Biology book series (MIMB,volume 1472)

Abstract

Applications of microchip-synthesized oligonucleotides for de novo gene synthesis are limited primarily by their high error rates. The mismatch binding protein MutS, which can specifically recognize and bind to mismatches, is one of the cheapest tools for error correction of synthetic DNA. Here, we describe a protocol for removing errors in microchip-synthesized oligonucleotides and for the assembly of DNA segments using these oligonucleotides. This protocol can also be used in traditional de novo gene DNA synthesis.

Key words

  • MutS
  • Microchip-synthesized oligonucleotides
  • Gene assemble
  • Error removal
  • De novo gene synthesis
