Incubation Temp: 37C

Methylation Effects:
BamHI does not cut GGATm4CC, GGATm5CC, GGAThm5Chm5C, GGAhm5UCC, but cuts GGATCm5C, GGm6ATCC, GGm6ATCm5C and GGATCm4C.

Number of Recognition Sites in DNA Molecules:

pUC18/19: 1
pUC57: 1
pTZ19R/U: 1

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 37C.

Thermal Inactivation: Only small amounts of enzyme (up to 10 units) can be inactivated at 80C 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 Assay: pUC57 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).
