Guide-it Mutation Detection Kit

The Guide-it Mutation Detection Kit contains all the reagents needed for PCR-based identification of insertions or deletions generated in the genome of cells treated with engineered nucleases such as zinc-finger nucleases (ZFNs), transcription-activator-like effector nucleases (TALENs), or CRISPR/Cas9. The first step is the amplification of the putative target sequence directly from cells. This kit uses Terra PCR Direct Polymerase Mix and Buffer, so there is no need to extract genomic DNA from your cell population prior to amplification of your target sequence. The amplicon is then melted and hybridized to form the mismatched targets for cleavage by the Guide-it Resolvase. Agarose gel electrophoresis can be used to visualize the cleavage products.
