Stability during Prolonged Incubation A minimum of 0.5 units of enzyme are required for complete digestion of 1ug of lambda DNA in 16 hours at 37°C.
Thermal Inactivation Only small amounts of enzyme (up to 10 units) can be inactivated at 80°C for 20min.
Compatible Ends BclI, BglII, Bsp143I, MboI, PsuI
Overdigestion Assay
No detectable change in the specific fragmentation pattern is observed after 80-fold overdigestion (5u/ug lambda DNA x 16 hours) with BamHI (see Star Activity).
Ligation/Recutting Assay
After 50-fold overdigestion (3u/ug DNA x 17 hours) with BamHI, more than 95% of the DNA fragments can be ligated at a 5'-termini concentration of 0.02uM. More than 95% of these can be recut.
Labeled Oligonucleotide (LO) Assay
No detectable degradation of a single-stranded and double-stranded labeled oligonucleotide was observed after incubation with 10 units of restriction endonuclease for 4 hours.
Blue/White Cloning AssayPUC57 was digested at a unique site with 10 units of enzyme for 16 hours. After religation and transformation 0.2% of white colonies were detected.
Digestion of Agarose-embedded DNA
A minimum of 5 units of enzume is required for complete digestion of 1ug of agarose- embedded lambda DNA in 16 hours.
Star Activity
Appears at > 5-fold overdigestion at (5u x 1h).
