Product Information

 

Description:

Taq DNA Polymerase is a thermostable DNA polymerase from Thermus aquaticus YT-1 ,that possesses a 5´→ 3´ polymerase activity and a 5´ flap endonuclease activity.

Storage and transportation: Storage at -20℃ and transportation ≤ 0 ℃

Storage buffer: 10 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.4 at 25 ℃), 100 mM KCl, 0.1 mM EDTA, 1 mM dithiothreitol, 0.5% Tween 20, 0.5% IGEPALCA-630 and 50% Glycerol.

Unit definition: One unit is defined as the amount of enzyme that will incorporate 15 nmol of dNTP into acid-insoluble material in 30 minutes at 75°C.

Quality Control Assays

  • Endonuclease Activity: Incubation of 20 U of the enzyme with 4 μg pUC19 DNA for 4 hours at 37°C resulted in no detectable degradation of the DNA as determined by gel electrophoresis.
  • 5 kb λDNA PCR: 25 Cycles of PCR amplification of 5 ng λDNA with 1.25 units of Taq DNA Polymerase in the presence of 200 µM dNTPs and 0.2 µM primers results in the expected 5 kb product
  • Exonuclease Activity: Incubation of a 50 µl reaction containing a minimum of 12.5 U of Taq DNA Polymerase with 10 nM 5´-FAM oligonucleotide for 30 minutes at 37℃ yields no detectable degradation
  • Endonuclease Activity: Incubation of 20 U of the enzyme with 4 μg pUC19 DNA for 4 hours at 37°C resulted in no detectable degradation of the DNA as determined by gel electrophoresis.
  • 5 kb λDNA PCR: 25 Cycles of PCR amplification of 5 ng λDNA with 1.25 units of Taq DNA Polymerase in the presence of 200 µM dNTPs and 0.2 µM primers results in the expected 5 kb product
  • Exonuclease Activity: Incubation of a 50 µl reaction containing a minimum of 12.5 U of Taq DNA Polymerase with 10 nM 5´-FAM oligonucleotide for 30 minutes at 37℃ yields no detectable degradation
  • RNase Activity: Incubation of a 10 µl reaction containing 20 U of enzyme with 0.8 μg of MS2 RNA transcripts for 2 hours at 37°C resulted in no detectable degradation of the RNA as determined by gel electrophoresis.
  • Heat Inactivation: No

Reaction setup:

a

 
b: The optimal concentration of Taq DNA Polymerase may range from 0.1 – 0.5 units/25 µL reaction in specialized applications.
 

a: An initial denaturation of 1min at 95 °C is sufficient for most amplicons. For difficult templates, a longer denaturation of 2–3 min at 95°C is recommended. With colony PCR, an initial 5 min denaturation at 95°C is recommended.

b: The annealing step is typically 15-60 s. The annealing temperature is based on the Tm of the primer pair and is typically 45-68 ℃.
