They used a relatively high MgCl, concentration (2.0 mmol/L) without dimethyl sulfoxide in 35 cycles.
In the PCR, 100-200 ng of DNA was added to 25 [micro]L of reaction mixture containing 75 mmol/L Tris-HCl, pH 9.0, 20 mmol/L ammonium sulfate, 0.1 mL/L Tween, 1.5 mmol/L Mg[Cl.sub.2], 500 nmol/L of each primer, 0.2 mmol/L dNTPs, 100 mL/L dimethyl sulfoxide, and 0.6 units of Taq polymerase (Advance Biotechnology).
To this reaction vial, 30 [micro]L of cell supernatant, 30 [micro]L of NaB[H.sub.4] solution (4 mol/L in 0.1 mol/L NaOH and 300 mL/L dimethyl sulfoxide), 10 [micro]L of dithioerythritol (1.67 mmol/L in 2 mmol/L EDTA), and 30 [micro]L of 1-octanol (to avoid foam formation) were added in one step.
To enhance genotyping and to prevent misclassification of heterozygous individuals, we added 50 mL/L dimethyl sulfoxide to the reaction mixture [9].

In brief, cells (about 1-2 x [10.sup.5] cells/well) in 24-well culture plates containing 1 mL medium per well were exposed to various concentrations (0, 0.3, 1.0, 3.0, 10.0, and 30 [micro]M) of the triazine herbicides or their metabolites (Riedel-deHaen, Seelze, Germany) (see structures in Figure 1) dissolved in 1 [micro]L of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO; Sigma).
PCR amplification was performed in 40 [micro]L volume, and the reaction mixture consisted of 300-500 ng of DNA, 0.625 mmol/L magnesium chloride, 50 mmol/L potassium chloride, 240 [micro]mol/L of each dNTP, 120 g/L dimethyl sulfoxide, 20 pmol of each primer (one labeled with FAM), and 1.25 U of AmpliTaq (Perkin-Elmer).
The RNA was denatured with 1 M glyoxal and 50% dimethyl sulfoxide, electrophoresed on an agarose gel, and transferred to a Hybond-N nylon membrane (Amersham Pharmacia Biotech).
