Unit definitionOne unit of the enzyme is the amount required to hydrolyze 1 μg of Lambda DNA in 1 hour at 65°C in a total reaction volume of 50 μl.
Optimal SE-bufferY (33 mM Tris-acetate (pH 7.9 at 25°C); 10 mM magnesium acetate; 66 mM potassium acetate; 1 mM DTT.) + BSA
Enzyme activity (%)
BGOWYRose
75 - 10075 - 10050 - 7575 - 100100100
Optimal temperature
65oC
Storage conditions10 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.5); 50 mM KCl; 0.1 mM EDTA; 7 mM 2-mercaptoethanol; 200 μg/ml BSA; 50% glycerol.
Store at -20°C.
For long term storage (more than 30 days), store at -70ºC.
LigationsAfter 2-fold overdigestion with enzyme 80% of DNA fragments can be ligated. Of these 80% can be recut.
Non-specific hydrolisisNo nonspecific activity was detected after incubation of 1 μg of Lambda DNA with 5 u.a. of enzyme for 16 hours at 65°C.
Reagents Supplied with Enzyme 10 X SE-buffer Y, BSA
Methylation sensitivitynot tested
Inactivation 20 minutes under
80oC
NotesTo 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.
