General description

Klenow Fragment is a mesophilic DNA polymerase derived from the E.coli Polymerase I DNA-dependent repair enzyme. The enzyme exhibits DNA synthesis and proofreading (3′ → 5′) nuclease activities, and, in the absence of the holoenzyme′s (5′→3′) nuclease domain, displays a moderate strand displacement activity during DNA synthesis. The protein is expressed as a truncated product of the E.coli PolA gene.

Application

Suitable for:
  • DNA blunting by fill-in of 5′ overhang
  • Second strand cDNA synthesis
  • Sequencing
  • Site-specific mutagenesis

Features and Benefits

  • Ultra-purification process for ultimate enzyme performance
  • Highest quality specifications for ultimate product consistency
  • Undetectable DNA and nuclease contamination

Components

Supplied with:KEM0042B (10X Blue Buffer)

Unit Definition
