  • Steven M Block in EurekAlert (press release)
    POL-Q's two-step actions of insertion and extension, essentially the work that would be performed by two enzymes, are the most efficient of any known DNA polymerase. While a mispaired base may in turn result in a mutation after replication, it... Richard D.
