DNA Polymerase I (Pol I)
DNA Polymerase I (Pol I) catalyzes the incorporation of dNTPs into double-stranded DNA in a 5'→3' direction that is complementary to the DNA or RNA template strand. It possesses 3'→5' exonuclease (proofreading) activity as well as 5'→3' exonuclease activity, making the enzyme useful for DNA end blunting and DNA labeling by nick translation. DNA Polymerase I is supplied in a buffer of 50 mM potassium phosphate (pH 6.5), 1 mM DTT and 50% glycerol.
- DNA labeling by nick translation
- DNA end blunting of 5'- and 3'-overhangs
- cDNA synthesis from DNA or RNA template
Recombinant E. coli
One unit is defined as the amount of enzyme that catalyzes the incorporation of 10 nmol of total nucleotides into acid-insoluble product in 30 minutes at 37°C and pH 7.4, using poly d(A-T) as the template-primer.
