Learn about Ligase Fidelity and Push the Limits of Golden Gate Assembly (20+ fragments)

R3535

Attention Golden Gate Assembly users: BsaI-HFv2 (NEB #R3733) has been optimized for Golden Gate Assembly*.  BsaI-HFv2 also works well for any protocol requiring DNA cutting by BsaI. This is the recommended enzyme for any purpose requiring digestion at the recognition sequence ...5′-GGTCTC(N1)/(N5)-3′...
 
*The requirements for digestion of DNA during Golden Gate Assembly are more demanding than what is encountered in traditional DNA cloning. For Golden Gate, the enzyme must function well in a buffer that might not be the same buffer as that normally provided for the restriction enzyme, and maintain activity for an extended time at elevated temperatures in a dynamic cutting/re-ligating reaction with competition for substrate binding between the endonuclease and ligase. Extensive testing has demonstrated superior performance of BsaI-HFv2 compared to both BsaI (NEB #R0535) and BsaI-HF (NEB #R3535) in this challenging Golden Gate assembly context where restriction enzyme efficiency and fidelity are critically important.

High-Fidelity (HF®) restriction enzymes have the same specificity as native enzymes, but have been engineered for significantly reduced star activity and performance in a single buffer (CutSmart® Buffer).  All HF-restriction enzymes come with Gel Loading Dye, Purple (6X).  Enjoy the enhanced performance and added value of our engineered enzymes at the same price as the native enzyme:

  • Engineered for improved performance
  • Used in Golden Gate Assembly; maintains high activity levels in T4 DNA Ligase Buffer often used in this application
  • Type IIS restriction enzymes recognize asymmetric DNA sequences and cleave outside of their recognition sequence
  • 100% activity in CutSmart Buffer
  • Time-Saver™ qualified for digestion in 5-15 minutes
  • Reduced star activity

"I really, really love BsaI-HFv2. We are back to getting phenomenal GGA results again with very little background."
