R1625: Restriction Enzyme Buffer A, 10X
R1625-03: Restriction Enzyme Buffer D, 10X
Unit Definition: One unit is defined as the amount of enzyme required to digest 1ug of lambda DNA in 1 hour at 37°C in 50ul of assay buffer.
Incubation Temperature: 37°C
For short-term storage (3-4 weeks):
Dilute with Diluent Buffer (R1625-05, 10mM Tris-HCl, pH 7.4 at 25°C, 100mM potassium chloride, 1mM EDTA, 1mM DTT, 0.2mg/ml BSA, 50% glycerol.
For long-term storage:
Dilute with Storage Buffer (10mM potassium phosphate, pH 7.4, 25°C, 300mM NaCl, 1mM EDTA, 7mM 2-mercaptoethanol, 0.2mg/ml BSA, 0.15% Triton X-100, 50% glycerol).
Overdigestion Assay: No detectable change in the specific fragmentation pattern is observed after 80-fold overdigestion (5u/ug lambda DNA x 16 hours) with EcoRI.
Ligation/Recutting Assay: After 50-fold overdigestion (3u/ug DNA x 17 hours) with EcoRI, more than 90% of the DNA fragments can be ligated at a 5'-termini concentration of 0.02uM. More than 90% of these can be recut.
Labeled Oligonucleotide Assay: No detectable degradation of a single-stranded and double-stranded labeled oligonucleotide was observed after incubation with 10u of restriction endonuclease for 4 hours.
Blue/White Cloning Assay: pUC57 was digested at a unique site with 10u of enzyme for 16 hours. After religation and transformation 0.2% of white colonies were detected.
Methylation Effects: EcoRI cuts neither Gm6AATTC nor GAm6ATTC, but cuts GAATTm5C, GAATThm5C and GAAhm5Uhm5UC.
Storage and Stability:
Store at -20C. Stable for 12-12 months.
Source: E.coli that carries the cloned ecoRIR gene from Escherichia coli RY13
(See E0375-05 for 50u/ul).
Star Activity: Star Activity appears at 10-fold overdigestion (10u x 1 hour). A large excess of the enzyme (10u/ug DNA x 16 hours), low salt concentration, high pH, or the replacement of Mg2+ by Mn2+ results in star activity.
Stability during Prolonged Incubation: A minimum of 0.2u of enzyme are required for complete digestion of 1ug of lambda DNA in 16 hours at 37°C.
Thermal Inactivation: Enzyme is inactivated by incubation at 65°C for 20min.
Digestion of Agarose-Embedded DNA: A minimum of 5u of enzyme is required for complete digestion of 1ug of agarose-embedded lambda DNA in 16 hours.
