Specifications

Purified from an E.coli strain carrying a plasmid with the cloned gene encoding this enzyme. SP6 RNA Polymerase has a stringent specificity for its own promoter sequences and catalyzes the synthesis of RNA from ribonucleoside triphosphates in the presence of a DNA template.
Catalog #R2049
ApplicationsGeneration of strand-specific RNA sequences (see Protocol for Synthesis of Strand-specific RNA Sequences and Protocol for Synthesis of High Specific Activity Radiolabeled RNA Sequences) that may be used:
Probes for hybridization (1) and genomic DNA sequencing (2), 
RNase protection assays (3), 
Antisense RNAs (4) 
Templates for in vitro RNA translation analysis (5) 
Substrates for studies of RNA splicing (6), RNA secondary structure and RNA-protein interactions (7).
Supplied with 20u/ul 0.25ml of 5X Transcription Buffer
Unit DefinitionOne unit of enzyme incorporates 1 nanomole of AMP into a polynucleotide fraction (adsorbed on DE-81) in 60 minutes at 37°C.

Quality Control
Endodeoxyribonuclease AssayNo detectable conversion of covalently closed circular DNA to nicked DNA was observed after incubation of 200 units of SP6 RNA Polymerase with 1ug of pBR322 DNA in 50ul of buffer (40mM Tris-HCl (pH 8.0), 6mM MgCl2, 10mM DTT) for 1 hour at 37°C.
Exodeoxyribonuclease Assay0% of the total radioactivity was released into trichloroacetic acid-soluble fraction after incubation of 200 units of SP6 RNA Polymerase with 1ug of sonicated E.coli [3H]-DNA in 50ul of buffer (40mM Tris-HCl (pH 8.0), 6mM MgCl2, 10mM DTT) for 1 hour at 37°C.
Ribonuclease Assay0% of the total radioactivity was released into trichloroacetic acid-soluble fraction after incubation of 200 units of SP6 RNA Polymerase with 1ug of E.coli [3H]-RNA in 50ul of buffer (40mM Tris-HCl (pH 8.0), 6mM MgCl2, 10mM DTT) for 1 hour at 37°C.
Functional AssaySP6 RNA Polymerase was tested for use in the synthesis of strand-specific RNA sequences.
