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 O + BSA, (50 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.6 at 25°C); 10 mM MgCl2; 100 mM NaCl; 1 mM DTT + 100 μg/ml BSA)
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% glycerol. Store at -20°C.
LigationAfter 20-fold overdigestion with enzyme 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 40 u.a. of enzyme for 16 hours at 37°C.
Reagents Supplied with Enzyme 10 X SE-buffer O, BSA
Inactivation 20 minutes under
80oC
NotesHigh enzyme concentration may result in star activity.
To 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.
