Conditions for 100% Activity:

  • 1X Buffer R: 10mM Tris-HCl (pH 8.5 at 37°C), 10mM MgCl2, 100mM KCl and 0.1mg/mL BSA
  • Incubate at 37°C

Storage Buffer:

  • MboI is supplied in:10mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.5 at 25°C), 50mM KCl, 1mM DTT, 0.1mM EDTA, 0.2mg/mL BSA and 50% (v/v) glycerol

Ligation and Recleavage:

  • After 50-fold overdigestion with MboI, more than 95% of the DNA fragments can be ligated and recut

Methylation Effects:

  • Dam: completely overlaps —blocked
  • Dcm: never overlaps —no effect
  • CpG: may overlap —no effect
  • EcoKI: never overlaps —no effect
  • EcoBI: may overlap —blocked


Assayed using lambda DNA (dam) (#SD0021). MboI is blocked by overlappingdam methylation. To avoiddam methylation, use adam,dcm- strain such as GM2163 (#M0099). MboI, Bsp143I and DpnI all recognize the same sequence but have different methylation sensitivities and cleavage sites.
