Quick Blunting™ Kit
The Quick Blunting™ Kit is used to convert DNA with incompatible 5´or 3´overhangs to 5´phosphorylated, blunt-ended DNA for efficient blunt-end ligation into DNA cloning vectors.
- Restriction enzyme digested DNA is blunted in less than 30 minutes
- Reactions are performed at room temperature in a ready-to-use mix
- Suitable for restriction enzyme digested DNA, sheared or nebulized DNA or PCR product

The Quick Blunting Kit is used to convert DNA with incompatible 5´ or 3´ overhangs to 5´ phosphorylated, blunt-ended DNA for efficient blunt-end ligation into DNA cloning vectors. DNA is blunted using T4 DNA Polymerase (NEB #M0203) which has both 3´ → 5´ exonuclease activity and 5´ → 3´ polymerase activity. T4 Polynucleotide Kinase (NEB #M0201) is included in the enzyme mix for phosphorylation of the 5´ ends of blunt-ended DNA for subsequent ligation into a cloning vector. This kit is optimized for blunting up to 5 µg of DNA in a single reaction. To learn more about how to identify what type of overhang you have, visit this video tutorial.
