Recognition sequence: 5′-CAG/CTG-3′
Cutting results: a 2-10-fold Pvu II overdigestion of 1 μg λ DNA substrate results in 100% cutting
Heat inactivation: Activity not completely destroyed at 65 °C for 15 minutes.


PvuII is a DNA restriction enzyme used for molecular biology methods to cleave the recognition site 5′-CAG/CTG-3′ to generate DNA fragments with blunt termini.

Other Notes

Supplied with 10x Restriction Enzyme Buffer SM (B3158).
Comment: This enzyme exhibits star activity when used under conditions of low ionic strength, high enzyme concentration, glycerol concentration >5%, or pH >8.0.
Pvu II does not cut CAGm4CTG or CAGm5CTG.
