Screening for tolerance to an AT-rich template using conventional PCR amplification. Top panel: PCR amplification of a 540 bp locus (Pf3D7_11:1294982-1295521) with a relatively balanced (70% AT) base composition (positive control) in the presence or absence of TMAC. Bottom panel: PCR amplification of a 1217 bp locus (Pf3D7_01:55900-57116) with extreme AT content (84%) in the presence or absence of TMAC. M, 100 bp DNA ladder (NEB); (1) PWO master; (2) PWO master + TMAC; (3) PfuULTRA; (4) PfuULTRA + TMAC; (5) Kapa HiFi; (6) Kapa HiFi + TMAC; (7) AccuPrime Taq HiFi; (8) AccuPrime Taq HiFi + TMAC; (9) AccuPrime pfx SuperMix; (10) Phusion; (11) Phusion +TMAC; (12) Platinum HiFi; (13) Platinum HiFi + TMAC; (14) Platinum pfx; (15) Platinum pfx + TMAC, (16) Ex Taq; (17) Ex Taq + TMAC; (18) Kapa2G Robust; (19) Kapa2G Robust + TMAC.
