E. coli DNA Ligase catalyzes the formation of a phosphodiester bond between the 5´-phosphate and the 3´-hydroxyl of two adjacent DNA strands in duplex DNA with cohesive ends. It is not appreciably active on blunt-ended substrates. E. coli DNA Ligase uses NAD as a cofactor and can be heat-inactivated. E. coli DNA Ligase is active at a range of temperatures (4° C – 37° C).
