Optimal temperature
37oC
Storage conditions20 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.6); 300 mM NaCl; 0,1 mM EDTA; 7 mM 2-mercaptoethanol; 10 mM MgCl2, 200 μg/ml BSA, 50% glycerol.
Store at -20°C.
For long term storage (more than 30 days), store at -70ºC.
LigationsAfter 10-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 10 u.a. of enzyme for 16 hours at 37°C.
Reagents Supplied with Enzyme 10 X SE-buffer Y, BSA
Methylation sensitivitynot tested
Inactivation 20 minutes under
65oC
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.
