  • Protocol for Dephosphorylation of 5´-ends of DNA using rSAP in Restriction Enzyme Reaction (M0371)

    1. Digest 1–5 μg of plasmid DNA in a 20 μl reaction as follows:
      DNA    ≥ 1 µl
      Restriction Enzyme Buffer (10X)    2 µl
      Restriction Endonuclease    1 µl
      H2O, purified    to 20 µl

      Note: Scale larger reaction volumes proportionally.

    2. Incubate at 37°C for 60 minutes or follow manufacturer’s recommendations.

    3. Add 1 unit of rSAP for every 1 pmol of DNA ends (about 1 μg of a 3 kb plasmid) and incubate at 37°C for 30–60 minutes.

    4. Stop reaction by heat-inactivation of rSAP and restriction enzyme (follow manufacturer's recommendations).
    Note: If restriction enzyme cannot be heat-inactivated, DNA purification is required before ligation.
