Hi Bernhard,

I can tell you that many aminoglycosides can cause read-through of stop
codons. The ones that I was most familiar with back then were neomycin and
gentamicin....both insanely common in any science lab in the world. These
were not the ones I used I am pretty sure, but honestly, this was atleast 5
years ago so do not remember what aminoglycoside I used. I'm sure a 5
minute search of the scientific literature would turn it up. As I recall,
I came across this when reading more about the molecular biology of
premature stop codon read-through for CF therapy and thought, hey that could
be fun to fiddle with at home.

Perhaps we could all sit at home and make designer aroids for ourselves, but
I would worry that this schlock would end up on ebay along with some of the
rest of the garbage that can be found there.

Happy mutating everyone,
