Why don't I get the correct PCR product when using primers to amplify my gene with added restriction sites?
If you are using a primer that adds a restriction site to the portion of DNA that you are trying to PCR, you need to use the Tm of just the portion of the primer that will initially bind in the first several rounds of PCR, then you can adjust the temperature to match the Tm for the entire primer.
