Conditions for 100% Activity:

  • 1X Buffer BseXI: 50mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.5 at 37°C), 2mM MgCl2, 100mM NaCl and 0.1mg/mL BSA
  • Incubate at 65°C
  • To ensure higher efficiency of digestion, perform the cleavage reaction under paraffin oil

Storage Buffer:

  • BseXI is supplied in:10mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.4 at 25°C), 200mM NaCl, 1mM DTT, 1mM EDTA, 0.2mg/mL BSA and 50% (v/v) glycerol

Ligation and Recleavage:

  • After 10-fold overdigestion with BseXI, more than 95% of the DNA fragments can be ligated recut

Methylation Effects:

  • Dam: never overlaps — no effect
  • Dcm: never overlaps — no effect
  • CpG: may overlap — no effect
  • EcoKI: never overlaps — no effect
  • EcoBI: may overlap — effect not determined


Assayed using pBR322 DNA (#SD0041). Incubation at 37°C results in 10% activity. Greater than 40-fold overdigestion with BseXI may result in star activity. BseXI may remain associated with the cleaved DNA. This may cause DNA band shifting during electrophoresis. To avoid atypical DNA band patterns, use the 6X DNA Loading Dye & SDS Solution for sample preparation or heat the digested DNA in the presence of SDS prior to electrophoresis.
