Glycerol Free Bsu DNA Polymerase I, Large Fragment is suitable for various purposes including RPA (Recombinase Polymerase Amplification)
Glycerol Free Bsu DNA Polymerase Large Fragment
Bsu DNA Polymerase I, Large Fragment is a product of the Bacillus subtilis DNA polymerase I which lacks the N-terminal exonuclease domain (1-296 amino acids). It retains the 5´→ 3´ polymerase activity of DNA polymerase I but lacks the 5´→ 3´ exonuclease activity. This large fragment also lacks 3´→ 5´ exonuclease activity (1).
Glycerol acts as a cryoprotectant and protein stabilizer when added to the storage buffer of proteins and enzymes. However, in certain circumstances, it is preferred to omit glycerol from the buffer. This includes instances where the presence of glycerol may interfere, such as lyophilization, high-throughput instruments with sensitive fluidics or primary cell cultures.
For our glycerol free products, it is recommended to use immediately upon thaw as without glycerol there will be significant activity loss with freeze/thaw cycles.
