Antarctic Phosphatase (AnP) is a heat labile alkaline phosphatase purified from a recombinant source.
Antarctic Phosphatase (AnP) is a heat labile alkaline phosphatase purified from a recombinant source. AnP nonspecifically catalyzes the dephosphorylation of 5´ and 3´ ends of DNA and RNA phosphomonoesters. Also, AnP Hydrolyses ribo-, as well as deoxyribonucleoside triphosphates (NTPs and dNTPs). AnP is useful in many molecular biology applications such as the removal of phosphorylated ends of DNA and RNA for subsequent use in cloning or end-labeling of probes. In cloning, dephosphorylation prevents religation of linearized plasmid DNA. The enzyme acts on 5´ protruding, 5´ recessed, and blunt ends. AnP may also be used to degrade unincorporated dNTPs in PCR reactions to prepare templates for DNA sequencing or SNP analysis. AnP is completely and irreversibly inactivated by heating at 80°C for 2 minutes, thereby making removal of AnP prior to ligation or end-labeling unnecessary.
