The MutS DNA mismatch protein recognizes heteroduplex DNAs containing mispaired or unpaired bases. This Muts protein binds in vitro to heteroduplex DNAs containing mispaired or unpaired bases over a wide temperature range from 4 to 70 °C and has a thermostable ATPase activity. This thermostable Taq MutS is active at temperature between 0 to 75°C. Since Taq MutS efficiently binds to 1-4 bases deletion (or insertion) and mismatch base pairs, it is useful for detecting these mutations. Mutations can be detected in polyacrylamide gels or on a solid phase such as Ni agarose or beads or magnetic Ni-NTA particles.

• Remove mismatch DNA (error correction) from gene synthesis reaction
• Mutation detection and removal
• Rapid isothermal SNP detection
