Assayed onLambda DNA
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.
Reaction bufferSE-buffer EcoRI, (100 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.6 at 25°C); 10 mM MgCl2; 50 mM NaCl; 1 mM DTT.)
Optimal temperature
37oC
Storage conditions10 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.5); 200 mM NaCl; 0.1 mM EDTA; 7 mM 2-mercaptoethanol; 200 μg/ml BSA; 50% glycerolerol; Store at -20°C.
LigationAfter 40-fold overdigestion with enzyme about 95% 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 40 u.a. of enzyme for 16 hours at 37°C.
Reagents Supplied with Enzyme 10 X SE-buffer EcoRI, BSA
Inactivation 20 minutes under
65oC
NotesHigh enzyme concentration and using of nonoptimal buffer may result in star activity.
Do not use BSA for long incubation.
To obtain 100% activity, BSA should be added to the 1 x reaction mix to a final concentration of 100 μg/ml.
