Concentration, u.a./ml50000-20000050000-200000

SourceIsolated from E.coli strain that carries the cloned DNA ligase gene from bacteriophage T4
DescriptionT4 DNA Ligase catalyzes the formation of a phosphodiester bond between juxtaposed 5 phosphate and 3 hydroxyl termini in duplex DNA or RNA. This enzyme will join blunt-end and cohesive end termini as well as repair single stranded nicks in duplex DNA, RNA, or DNA/RNA hybrids.
Applications:
- cloning of restriction fragments;
- joining linkers and adapters to blunt-ended DNA
Unit definitionOne unit is defined as the amoumt of enzyme required to give 50% ligation of Hind III fragments of Lambda DNA (5 DNA termini concentration of 0.12 M [300 g/ml]) in 20 l of 1 x T4 DNA Ligase Reaction Buffer in 30 minutes at 16C. ATP is an essential cofactor for the reaction
Reaction bufferSE-buffer DNA ligase T4, (50 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.8 at 25°C); 10 mM MgCl2; 10 mM DTT; 1 mM ATP.)
Optimal temperature
16oC
Storage conditions10 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.5); 50 mM NaCl; 0.1 mM EDTA; 7 mM 2-mercaptoethanol; 50% glycerol. Store at -20C.
Quality controlThe enzyme is purified free of contaminating endonucleases and exonucleases.
