KlenTaq® LA DNA Polymerase provides an excellent alternative to Taq DNA Polymerase for intermediate length products. It allows higher yields and greater fidelity (up to 4× that of Taq). It can amplify genomic DNA up to 5 kb or less complex DNA targets such as bacterial, viral targets or cDNA up to 20 kb. With its increased thermostability, it is the ideal choice for amplifying GC-rich regions or templates with difficult secondary structure.
KlenTaq LA DNA Polymerase Mix is an optimized mixture combining KlenTaq-1 with a proofreading enzyme. KlenTaq-1 is a Klenow-fragment analog of Taq DNA Polymerase. It has no endonuclease or exonuclease activity, but is more thermostable than Taq or other terminal deletions of Taq. Since a wide range of magnesium concentration is tolerated by this enzyme, generally no magnesium optimization is needed. The proofreading polymerase provides the 3′→5′ exonuclease activity that is necessary for longer and higher fidelity products.
