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 - 5010075 - 10075 - 10025 - 50100
Optimal temperature
Storage conditions10 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.6); 50 mM NaCl; 0,1 mM EDTA; 100 μg/ml BSA; 1 mM DTT; 50% glycerol. Store at -20°C.
LigationAfter 50-fold overdigestion with enzyme approximately 90% 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 20 u.a. of enzyme for 16 hours at 37°C.
Reagents Supplied with Enzyme 10 X SE-buffer G, BSA
Methylation sensitivityNot blocked by Dam methylation (GmATC) GGATCC
Inactivation 20 minutes under
NotesHigh enzyme concentration may result in star activity.
To obtain 100% activity, BSA should be added to the 1x reaction mix to a final concentration of 100 μg/ml.
Do not use BSA for long incubation.
