The Taq DNA Polymerase gene is isolated from Thermus aquaticus YT1 and expressed in E.coli. The recombinant Taq DNA Polymerase shows identical characteristics to native Taq from Thermus aquaticus. The enzyme consists of a single polypeptide with a molecular weight of 94 kDa, and will synthesize DNA products having dA overhangs on the 3’ ends.
Empirical Taq DNA Polymerase is supplied in a storage buffer containing: 20mM HEPES (pH 7.9), 100mM KCl, 0.1mM EDTA, 1mM DTT, 50% (v/v) Glycerol, and other stabilizers.
STORAGE & HANDLING: Store at -20°C upon arrival.
