Technical Data
DNA Polymerase I
Molecular Biology Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
DNA Polymerase I catalyzes the polymerization of nucleotides into duplex DNA in the 5=>3 direction. The enzyme exhibits 3-5 proofreading exonuclease activity and 5=>3 degrading activity. Purified from an E.coli strain carrying a DNA polymerase I overproducing plasmid.

Second strand cDNA synthesis
Nick translation

Supplied with:
D3935-05: DNA Polymerase I Reaction Buffer, 10X

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for 6 months at -20C. 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.

Molecular Weight:
E. coli, strain carrying a DNA polymerase I overproducing plasmid.

Supplied as a liquid in PBS, pH 7.5, 1mM DTT, 50% glycerol.


D3935-05, Reaction Buffer (10X): Supplied as a liquid in 500mM Tris-HCl, pH 7.5 (25C), 100mM MgCl2, 10mM DTT

Unit Definition:
One unit of enzyme will catalyze the exchange of 10nmole of total DNA to a DE-81 adsorbable form in 30 minutes at 37C using poly[dA-dT)] as a template primer.

Quality Control:
Endodeoyuribonuclease Assay:
No detectable conversion of covalently closed circular DNA to nicked DNA was observed after incubation of 20u of DNA Ploymerase with 1ug of pBR322 DNA in 50ul of reaction buffer for 4 hours at 37C.

Activity Assay:
67mM potassium phosphate (pH 7.4), 6.7mM MgCl2, 1mM 2-mercaptoethanol, 0.033mM dATP, 0.033mM dTTP, 0.4MBq/ml [3H]-dTTP and 62.5ug/ml poly(dA-dT)poly(dA-dT).
