Recognition site
SourceE.coli strain, that carries the cloned gene Mbo II from Moraxella bovis
Assayed onLambda DNA (dam-)
Unit definitionOne unit of the enzyme is the amount required to hydrolyze 1 μg of Lambda DNA (dam-) in 1 hour at 37°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.)
Enzyme activity (%)
75 - 10075 - 10025 - 5050 - 7510050
Optimal temperature
Storage conditions10 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.5); 50 mM NaCl; 0,1 mM EDTA; 1 mM DTT; 200 μg/ml BSA; 50% glycerol. Store at -20°C.
LigationsAfter 5-fold overdigestion with enzyme more than 60% of the DNA fragments can be ligated and recut. In presence of 10%PEG ligation is better.
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 37°C.
Reagents Supplied with Enzyme 10 X SE-buffer Y
Methylation sensitivityBlocked by overlappin dam-methylation(GmATC): GAAGATC.
Inactivation 20 minutes under
