Assayed onLambda DNA
Unit definitionOne unit of the enzyme is the amount required to hydrolyze 1 μg of Lambda DNA in 1 hour at 37°C in a total reaction volume of 50 μl.
Optimal SE-bufferG (10 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.6 at 25°C); 10 mM MgCl2; 50 mM NaCl; 1 mM DTT.) + BSA
Enzyme activity (%)
25 - 5010025 - 5025 - 5025 - 50100
Optimal temperature
Storage conditions10 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.5); 300 mM NaCl; 0,1 mM EDTA; 1 mM DTT; 100 μg/ml BSA; 50% glycerol. Store at -20°C.
LigationAfter 10-fold overdigestion with enzyme approximately 70% of the DNA fragments can be ligated and recut.
Non-specific hydrolisisNo nonspecific activity was detected after incubation of 1 μg of Lambda DNA with 10 u.a. of enzyme for 16 hours at 37°C.
Reagents Supplied with Enzyme 10 X SE-buffer G, BSA
For E111T and E112T an additional 10X SE-buffer ROSE+ is supplied.
Methylation sensitivitynot tested
Inactivation 20 minutes under
NotesHigh enzyme concentration may result in star activity.
To obtain 100% activity, BSA should be added to the 1 reaction mix to a final concentration of 100 μg/ml.
Do not use BSA for long incubation.
Turbo Pvu II can be used for short time (10 min) DNA digestion as well as for standard reaction. The reaction can be performed using optimal or universal (ROSE+) Buffer
Turbo DNA Digestion:
-Fast DNA analysis
-Fast preparation of vectors for cloning
-Double digestion
Enzyme Properties: 1 μl of Turbo Pvu II cuts 1 μg of DNA in 1 x SE-Buffer G with BSA or universal 1 x SE-Buffer ROSE+ in 10 min (see the protocol below). A short time of DNA digestion requires high quality purification of DNA sample. The enzyme may be used in standard conditions of DNA cleavage (E111).
Turbo reaction protocol: 20 μl of the reaction volume:
10 x SE Buffer ROSE+ - 2 μl
DNA - 0,2-1 μg
Nuclease-free water - to 20 μl
+ 1μl of Turbo Pvu II
Incubate at 37°C for 10 min.
