Assayed using lambda DNA (dam) (#SD0021). MboII is blocked by overlappingdam methylation. To avoiddam methylation, use adam,dcm- strain such as GM2163 (#M0099). Greater than 15-fold overdigestion with MboII may result in star activity. MboII produces DNA fragments that have a single-base 3 extension which are more difficult to ligate than blunt-ended fragments. MboII 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.
