COMMENTS

Let H(n,b) be the Hamming graph whose vertices are the sequences of length n over the alphabet {0,1,...,b1} with adjacency being defined by having Hamming distance 1. Let P(n,b) be the subgraph of H(n,b) induced by the set of vertices which are base b representations of primes with n digits (not allowing leading 0 digits).
For 6 and 7 digit primes there is a single large component and the remaining components have size 1. For 8 digit primes there is a single large component, the size 2 component {89391959, 89591959} and the remaining components have size 1. [W. Edwin Clark, Mar 31 2009]
The elements of size 2 components in these graphs are sequence A253269. [Michael Kleber, May 04 2015]

EXAMPLE

The 6digit primes 294001, 505447, 584141, 604171, 929573, 971767 (cf. A050249) have the property that changing any single digit always gives a composite number, so these are isolated nodes in the graph P(6,10) (which also has one large connected component).
