PCR primer pairs used in this study*

Primer name Gene name Product name Genome coordinates Orientation Product
length (bp) Sequence (5′ to >3′)
RdRp primer ORF 1b Nsp12-pp1ab (RdRp) 15146–15164 Sense 88 TAAGTTTTATGGCGGCTGG
Nsp14 primer ORF 1b Nsp14-pp1ab (nuclease ExoN homolog) 19113–19138 Sense 137 TGTTTGTTTTGGAATTGTAATGTTGA

*All coordinates are based on SARS TOR2 genome (GenBank accession no. NC_004718.3). 5′ propynyl-modified pyrimidine nucleotides are shown in bold. Each primer was designed to include a thymidine (T) nucleotide on the 5′ end to minimize addition of nontemplated adenosine (A) during polymerase chain reaction (PCR) (data not shown). RdRp, RNA-dependent RNA polymerase.
