Uracil DNA Glycosylase (UNG), Heat-Labile
Uracil DNA Glycosylase (UNG or UDG) hydrolyzes N-glycosylic bonds between the deoxyribose sugars and uracil bases in uracil-containing DNA, leaving apyrimidinic sites in the DNA. UNG excises uracil from both single- and double-stranded dU-containing DNA but not from RNA. Incorporating UNG with dUTP in a PCR reaction can help minimize contamination caused by carryover products from amplification.
- For PCR using dUTPs to help minimize contamination caused by carryover products from amplification
- Produced in an E. coli ung− strain expressing a recombinant clone of Gadus morhua (cod) liver UNG.
