Features

  • OEM by QIAGEN offers bulk manufacturing of DNA Polymerase I in custom formulations.
  • 5'➞3' DNA synthesis
  • 3'➞5' and 5'➞3' exonuclease activity

Product Details

The enzyme is a mesophilic DNA polymerase that exhibits 5ʹ→3ʹ DNA synthesis, as well as both 5ʹ→3ʹ and 3ʹ→ 5ʹ exonuclease activities. The combination of DNA synthesis and 5ʹ→3ʹ nuclease characteristics enable nick-translation during DNA synthesis.

The enzyme is supplied in 25 mM Tris-HCl, 0.1 mM EDTA, 1.0 mM DTT and 50% glycerol; pH 7.4 at 25°C.

10X Blue Buffer (B0110) contains the following: 100 mM Tris-HCl, 500 mM NaCl, 100 mM MgCl2 and 10 mM DTT; pH 7.9 at 25°C.

Principle

Source of recombinant enzyme protein

The protein is produced by a recombinant E. coli strain carrying the PolA gene.

Unit definition:

One unit is defined as the amount of polymerase required to convert 10 nmol of dNTPs into acid insoluble material in 30 minutes at 37°C.

Procedure

Quality control analysis

Unit activity was measured using a twofold serial dilution method. Dilutions of enzyme were made in 1X Blue Reaction Buffer and added to 50 µl reactions containing calf thymus DNA, 1X Blue Reaction Buffer, 3H-dTTP and 100 µM dNTPs. Reactions were incubated 10 minutes at 37°C, placed on ice, and analyzed using a TCA-precipitation method.

Protein concentration is determined by OD260 absorbance.

Physical purity is evaluated by SDS-PAGE of concentrated and diluted enzyme solutions followed by silver-stain detection. Purity is assessed by comparing the aggregate mass of contaminant bands in the concentrated sample to the mass of the band corresponding to the protein of interest in the diluted sample.

Single-stranded exonuclease is determined in a 50 µl reaction containing a radiolabeled single-stranded DNA substrate and 10 µl of enzyme solution incubated for 4 hours at 37°C.

Double-stranded exonuclease activity is determined in a 50 µl reaction containing a radiolabeled double-stranded DNA substrate and 10 µl of enzyme solution incubated for 4 hours at 37°C.

Double-stranded endonuclease activity is determined in a 50 µl reaction containing 0.5 µg of plasmid DNA and 10 µl of enzyme solution incubated for 4 hours at 37°C.

E. coli contamination is evaluated using 5 µl replicate samples of enzyme solution that are denatured and screened in a TaqMan qPCR assay for the presence of contaminating E. coli genomic DNA using oligonucleotide primers corresponding to the 16S rRNA locus.
