Recombinant Pfu DNA Polymerase (Pfu) has been shown to exhibit superior thermostability and proofreading properties compared to other thermostable polymerase. Unlike Taq DNA Polymerase, highly thermostable Pfu possesses 3' to 5' exonuclease proofreading activity that enables the polymerase to correct nucleotide-misincorporation errors. This means that Pfu generated PCR fragments will have fewer errors than Taq-generated PCR inserts. The error rate for Pfu is reported to be 7 to 10 fold lower than that of nonproofreading Taq DNA polymerase, and 2 to 30 fold lower than other proofreading enzymes. Using Pfu in your PCR reactions results in blunt-ended PCR products, which are ideal for cloning into blunt-ended vectors. Pfu is superior for techniques that require high-fidelity DNA synthesis.
Catalog #D3935-65B
E.coli strain carrying a plasmid with the cloned gene encoding the hyperthermophilic archae Pyrococcus furiosus DNA Polymerase.
1. Ideal for high-fidelity amplification
2. 3'-5' exonuclease activity provides a low error rate.
3. One of the most thermostable DNA polymerases known.
4. Lack of extendase activity means no unwanted 3 overhangs.
5. Optimal for blunt-end PCR cloning.
