Product Description :
Taq DNA Polymerase is purified from E. coli expressing a cloned DNA polymerase from Thermus aquaticus. The enzyme consists of a single polypeptide with a molecular weight of approximately 94 kDa. Taq DNA Polymerase has 5′-3′ DNA polymerase activity and 5′-3′ exonuclease activity. It lacks 3′-5′ exonuclease activity. Taq DNA Polymerase is suitable for routine amplification. PCR products are unsuitable for PAGE.
Extension rate is about 1-2 kb/min.
Template-independent “A” can be generated at the 3′ end of the PCR product.
Amplification of genomic DNA fragment up to 4 kb.
