Enzyme activity (%)
BGOWYRose
10075 - 10010 - 2510 - 2550 - 75100
Optimal temperature
50oC
Storage conditions10 mM Tris-HCl(pH 7.5); 200 mM KCl; 0.1 mM EDTA; 7 mM 2-mercaptoethanol; 200 μg/ml BSA; 50% glycerol. Store at -20°C.
LigationsAfter 5-fold overdigestion with enzyme more than 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 10 u.a. of enzyme for 16 hours at 50°C.
Reagents Supplied with Enzyme 10 X SE-buffer B, BSA
Methylation sensitivitynot tested
Inactivation 20 minutes under
80oC
NotesTo obtain 100% activity, BSA should be added to the 1 x reaction mix to a final concentration of 100 μg/ml
Do not use BSA for long incubation.
