Under physiological conditions, RR maintains stable deoxyribonucleotide production, which is essential for DNA synthesis; accordingly, inhibition of RR activity eliminates this balance.
The essential components in a standard single target PCR contain target DNA, two oligonucleotide primers, a DNA polymerase, deoxyribonucleotide triphosphates (dNTPs), MgCl2, KCl, and Tris-HCl buffer.
5 mM magnesium chloride (MgCl2), 200 [micro]M of each deoxyribonucleotide triphosphates (dNTP), 20 pmol/L of each set of specific primers (metabion international AG, Martinsried, Germany), 1 unit Taq DNA polymerase (MBI Fermentas, Amherst, NY, USA), and 0.
These assays measure the incorporation of radiolabelled deoxyribonucleotide triphosphates (dNTPs) into mechanically sheared or enzymatically digested complex genomic DNA.

The Austin team's innovative work involves novel methods for developing Deoxyribonucleotide triphosphates (dNTPs) - the individual building blocks for DNA that are made during Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), a process to amplify specific cloned or genomic DNA during genetic sequencing.
We purchased the Superscript II Reverse Transcriptase (RT) kit, deoxyribonucleotide triphosphate (dNTPs), and Taq polymerase from Invitrogen (Karlsruhe, Germany); restriction enzymes from New England Biolabs (Frankfurt, Germany); random primers from Roche (Mannheim, Germany); and RNAse inhibitor from Promega (Mannheim, Germany).
Differential polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was performed to assess the GSTM1 polymorphism: 268 base pair (bp) ([beta]-globin) and 215 bp (GSTM1) PCR products were amplified using 30 pmol of primers for the GSTM1 gene and 10 pmol primers for the [beta]-globin gene in a 25 [micro]l reaction (200 [micro]M of each deoxyribonucleotide (dNTP), 3.
The PCR mixture contained 50 ng DNA, 5 [micro]1 2 mM deoxyribonucleotide triphosphates (dNTPs) (lithium salts), 5 [micro]1 10x Hotstar Buffer, 3 or 5 [micro]1 additional 25 mM MgC[1.
DNA polymerase cannot create links between deoxyribonucleotides unless a free 3'-OH residue (ribo- or deoxyribonucleotide) permits the initiation of replication.
PCR amplifications were carried out in 25 [micro]L reaction mixtures containing 2 mM mixture of deoxyribonucleotide triphosphate phate (dNTP), 2.
