Technical Data
DNA Polymerase I Klenow Fragment, Exo-Minus, Recombinant
Molecular Biology Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
Klenow fragment, exo, is an N-terminal truncation of E. coli DNA Polymerase I at amino acid #323 . In this construct, the domain containing the 5-3 exonuclease activity is deleted, leaving the polymerase function intact. In addition two mutations are introduced (D355A and E357A) which abolish the 3-5 exonuclease activity. The enzyme features strand displacement capability , an error rate of @ 100x100e-6 bases and has no intrinsic exonuclease activity.

Recombinant single protein; not a fusion construct.
Generates probes using direct or indirect labeling methods.
Specific Activity: 15,000-20,000 units/mg.
Low DNA content
High concentration, automation grade.
Supplied with 10X Reaction Buffer. High concentrations supplied with 1X Dilution Buffer

Size1 100ul 5u/ul
Size2 50ul 40u/ul
Size3 20ul 200u/ul

Also included are 1ml dilution buffer and 2ml 10X reaction buffer.

Application(s): Dideoxy sequencing (2), blunt ending restriction fragments, second strand cDNA synthesis for labeling and for use in mutagenesis protocols (3). The enzyme is extensively utilized for labeling of DNA with nucleotide analogs for use as microarray probes (4).

5' ss+ds exonuclease (Removal of labeled nucleotide from 5' end of a ss or ds oligonucleotide): None Detected
3' ss+ds exonuclease (Removal of labeled nucleotide from 3' end of a ss or ds oligonucleotide): None Detected

unit functional assay:
1 unit incorporates 10nMol32P dTTP into acid insoluble material in 30 minutes at 37C using poly dA/dT as substrate

Storage and Stability:
For long-term storage, store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 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.
