Catalyzes 5=>3 synthesis of DNA. Enzyme has 3=>5 exonuclease activity but lacks 5=>3 exonuclease activity. T4 DNA polymerase possessing 3'=>5' exonuclease activity exhibits greater activity on single-stranded DNA than on double-stranded DNA.
Catalog #D3943
SourceE. coli with a cloned gene43 of bacteriophage T4.
Applications Blunting of DNA ends: fill-in 5'-overhangs or/and removal of 3'-overhangs, see protocol
Blunting of PCR products with 3-dA overhangs.
Synthesis of labeled DNA probes by the replacement reaction.
Oligonucleotide-directed site-specific mutagenesis.
Ligation-independent cloning of PCR products.
5X Reaction BufferD3943-05: DNA Polymerase T4 Buffer, 5X: Supplied as a liquid in 335mM Tris-HCl, pH 8.8, 33mM magnesium chloride, 5mM DTT, 84mM (NH4)2SO4.
Unit DefinitionOne unit of T4 DNA Polymerase catalyzes the incorporation of 10nmoles of deoxyribonucleotides into a polynucleotide fraction (adsorbed on DE-81) in 30min at 37°C.
Activity AssayAssayed in the following mixture: 67mM Tris-HCl, pH 8.8, 6.7mM MgCl2, 1mM DTT, 16.7mM (NH4)2SO4, 0.2mg/ml BSA, 0.033mM of each dNTP, 0.4mBq/ml [3H]-dTTP, 0.2mM heat-denatured and nuclease-digested calf thymus DNA.
Quality ControlNo conversion of covalently closed circular DNA to nicked DNA was detected after incubation of 10 units of T4 DNA Polymerase with 1ug of pUC19 DNA in 50ul reaction buffer for 4 hours at 37°C.
Storage and StabilityAliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for 6 months after receipt at -20°C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
