    Description

    Tth RecA is a RecA homolog isolated from Thermus thermophilus. It has a ssDNA-dependent ATPase activity at an optimal temperature between 65–75°C. The extreme thermostability makes Tth RecA ideal for molecular biology applications that require an elevated temperature condition, such as nucleic acid amplification and sequencing.

    Highlights

    • Extreme thermostability
    • Nucleic acid amplification and sequencing
    • Isolated from a recombinant source

    Product Source

    An E. coli strain that carries the cloned RecA gene from Thermus thermophilus

    Quality Control

    Quality Assurance Statement

    • Each lot is tested for its ability to form a stable triple helix and is visually determined to be > 99% pure on an SDSpolyacrylamide gel.

    Quality Control Assays

    The following Quality Control Tests are performed on each new lot and meet the specifications designated for the product. Individual lot data can be found on the Product Summary Sheet/Datacard or Manual which can be found in the Supporting Documents section of this page.
    • Endonuclease Activity (Nicking):
      The product is tested in a reaction containing a supercoiled DNA substrate. After incubation for 4 hours the percent converted to the nicked form is determined by agarose gel electrophoresis.
    • Exonuclease Activity (Radioactivity Release):
      The product is tested in a reaction containing a radiolabeled mixture of single and double-stranded DNA. After incubation for 4 hours the exonuclease activity is determined by the % release of radioactive nucleotides.
    • Non-Specific DNase Activity (16 hour):
      The product is tested for non-specific nuclease degradation in a reaction containing a DNA substrate. After incubation for 16 hours there is no detectable degradation of the DNA substrate as determined by agarose gel electrophoresis.

    Notes

    1. Tth RecA is active in any polymerase buffer. Add 400 ng of the Tth RecA per 50 µl reaction.
