  • DNA Strand Displacement Amplification

    Strand displacement amplification (SDA) relies on a strand-displacing DNA polymerase, typically Bst DNA polymerase, Large Fragment (NEB #M0275) or Klenow Fragment (3’-5’ exo–) (NEB #M0212), to initiate at nicks created by a strand-limited restriction endonuclease or nicking enzyme at a site contained in a primer. The nicking site is regenerated with each polymerase displacement step, resulting in exponential amplification. SDA is typically used in clinical diagnostics.
