MB Taq DNA Polymerase


MB Taq DNA Polymerase is a highly processive 5´→3´ polymerase with no 3´→5´ exonuclease (proofreading) activity. At 72 °C and around pH 9 conditions, MB Taq DNA Polymerase reaches its highest level of activity, capable of amplifying a standard 1 kb strand of DNA in approximately 30 seconds.

The Taq‘s activity is blocked at ambient temperature, e.g. while preparing your sample. The inhibition of the Taq polymerase is completely reversed when the temperature is above 70 °C. Complete activation of the polymerase is achieved at 94 °C for 2 min. MB Taq DNA Polymerase is supplied with a 10x buffer for maximal yield and sensitivity which should fit most standard applications.


Recommended Use / Scope

Routine and multiplex PCR; real-time PCR; T/A cloning; DNA labeling with biotin, digoxygenin or radioactive nucleotids,; sequencing of double or single stranded DNA
