The conductance of a weakly interacting electron gas in the presence of a single scatterer is found at arbitrary strength of the scattering potential. At weak interaction, a simple renormalization group approach can be used instead of the standard bosonization procedure. Our technique allows us to take into account the backscattering of electrons that leads to deviations of the low-temperature conductance from the behavior typical for Luttinger liquid. In the presence of magnetic field, the backscattering may give rise to a peak in differential conductance at bias equal to the Zeeman energy.
