My question is what if any effect does all that Mg++ have on your 
polymerase of choice?  My concern is that there could be a reduction in 
fidelity leading to an increase in sequence changes in the PCR product.

Has anybody got some experience with sequencing PCR products produced at 
such high Mg concentrations?
