Pwo DNA Polymerase Kit

Licensed for PCR*
Pwo DNA Polymerase is a highly processive 5’ 3’ DNA polymerase with additional 3’ 5’ exonuclease (proof-reading) activity. Pwo DNA Polymerase was originally isolated from the thermophilic archaebacterium Pyrococcus woesei; GENAXIS™ Biotechnology Pwo DNA Polymerase is the recombinant form cloned in E. coli. The enzyme has no detectable 5’ 3’ exonuclease activity. Pwo DNA Polymerase exhibits increased thermal stability as well as a tenfold increase in fidelity of DNA synthesis compared to Taq DNA Polymerase. Pwo DNA Polymerase generates blunt-ended PCR* products.

APPLICATIONS:  

  • all standard PCR* reactions replacing Taq DNA Polymerasel
  • cloning of PCR* products (Pwo DNA Polymerase generates blunt-ended fragments)l
  • characterization of rare mutations in tissuel
  • characterization of allelic polymorphismsl
  • characterization of a cell population in culturel
  • labeling of nucleic acids by PCR* with modified nucleotides
KIT CONTENT:

    • 100 units Pwo DNA Polymerase     (100l)
    • 10X reaction buffer complete     (1ml)
    • 10X reaction buffer incomplete     (1ml)
    • 25mM MgSO4     (1ml)
    • Dilution buffer     (1ml)

CONTENTRATION:

    1 unit/l.

REACTION BUFFER 10X COMPLETE:

100mM Tris-HCl pH8.8, 50mM (NH4)2SO4, 250mM KCl, 20mM MgSO4.

 

     

REACTION BUFFER 10X INCOMPLETE:

    100mM Tris-HCl pH8.8, 50mM (NH4)2SO4, 250mM KCl, without MgSO4. A tube of 25mM MgSO4 is provided separately.

UNIT DEFINITION:

    one unit is defined as the amount of enzyme required to incorporate 10nmoles of dNTPs into an acid precipitable form after 30 minutes at 70C.

COMMENTS:

    purified free of endonucleases ; performance was confirmed by using Lambda DNA as template (amplified fragment 7.5kb) and human placenta DNA as template (amplified fragment 3.0kb). Optimization efforts are often required.

STORAGE AND DILUTION BUFFER:

20mM Tris-HCl
pH7.5, 100mM KCl, 0.1mM EDTA, 1mM DTT, 0.5% NP 40, 0.5% Tween 20, 55% (v/v) glycerol and stabilizers. If necessary the enzyme can be diluted before use. Diluted enzyme can be stored at –20C up to six months.

 

 

STORAGE AND SHIPPING:

store at –20C. Shipped at room temperature.
