GC-Rich PCR Enzymes
GC-rich regions can promote the formation of undesired secondary structure in DNA, and efficient DNA amplification of templates containing GC-rich regions is improved through the use of specialized polymerases and modified cycling protocols. We've developed a range of polymerases—including AmpliTaq Gold® 360 and AccuPrime™ enzymes—designed for optimal performance with GC-rich DNA templates.
