TaKaRa Z-Taq DNA Polymerase
TaKaRa Z-Taq DNA Polymerase enables rapid PCR amplification due to its greater processivity relative to standard Taq DNA polymerase. Z-Taq polymerase can amplify a 1-kb DNA fragment from genomic DNA in 20 minutes, using a 30-cycle, two-step amplification protocol. The improved processivity of the Z-Taq enzyme also enables the amplification of longer fragments than standard Taq DNA polymerase (up to 20 kb from lambda DNA). This kit includes separate tubes of enzyme, buffer, and dNTPs.
- Reaction speed five times faster than standard Taq DNA polymerase
- Amplify human genomic DNA templates up to 17.5 kb, and lambda DNA templates of 20 kb
PCR products generated with Takara Z-Taq contain a mixture of 3'-A overhangs and blunt ends, allowing >80% cloning efficiency when using T-vectors.
