  • Publication number: 20200224234
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are in vivo methods, compositions, and kits for producing nucleic acids which comprises at least one unnatural base. Disclosed herein are in vivo methods of producing a nucleic acid with an expanded genetic alphabet, the method comprising incorporatin at least one unnatural base in the nucleic acid. Disclosed herein are semi-synthetic organisms comprising an expanded genetic alphabet, wherein the genetic alphabet comprises at least one unnatural base. Disclosed herein are compositions that include a heterologous or recombinant polymerase and methods of use thereof. Further, disclosed herein are kits that are useful for stably incorporating an unnatural nucleic acid into a nucleic acid molecule, e.g., using the methods provided by the present invention in in vitro condition or under a cell free condition.
