Supplied with: 10X OPTIZYME Buffer 4
Conditions for 100% Activity:

  • 1X OPTIZYME Buffer 4: 33mM Tris-acetate (pH 7.9 at 37°C), 10mM Mg-acetate, 66mM K-acetate and 0.1mg/ml BSA
  • Incubate at 37°C
Enzyme Activity in OPTIZYME buffers:
  • Buffer 1: 20 - 50%
  • Buffer 2: 20 - 50%
  • Buffer 3: 20 - 50%
  • Buffer 4: 100%
  • Buffer 5: 20 - 50%
Storage Buffer:

  • Ligation and Re-cleavage:
  • More than 95% of the DNA fragments can be ligated and re-cut after 50-fold over-digestion with ClaI.
  • Digestion of Agarose-embedded DNA:
  • A minimum of 5 units of ClaI is required for the complete digestion of 1μg of agarose-embedded lambda DNA in 16 hours.
  • Note:
    • ClaI is blocked by overlapping dam methylation. To avoid dam methylation, use a dam-, dcm- strain.
  • Compatible Ends: Bsp119I, Hin1I, Hin6I, HpaII, MaeII, MspI, NarI, Psp1406I, SsiI, TaqI, XmiI
  • Methylation Effects:
  • Dam: May overlap - blocked
