Familial fatal insomnia (FFI) is triggered by a GAC → AAC mutation in codon 178 (Asp178Asn) of the PRNP gene. You have an expression vector with the normal human PRNP gene cloned into the MCS. If you want to express the mutant protein in a human cell line, which technique can be used to generate the GAC → AAC mutation?
