The original QuikChange Site-Directed Mutagenesis Kits eliminate the need for subcloning into M13-based bacteriophage vectors and for ss-DNA rescue. This makes site-directed mutagenesis studies simple and reliable since it allows oligo-mediated introduction of site-specific mutations into virtually any double-stranded plasmid DNA. The XL version of the kit is specialized for efficient mutagenesis of large (4 -14 kb) or otherwise difficult-to mutagenize plasmid templates and features components specifically designed for more efficient DNA replication and bacterial transformation. The QuikChange Multi system allows mutagenesis at multiple sites (up to 5) in a single round, using a single oligonucleotide per site.
