Tth DNA Ligase catalyzes the NAD-dependent formation of phosphodiester bonds between adjacent 3’-hydroxyl and 5’-phosphate termini in double stranded DNA. It is not active against single stranded DNA or RNA and blunt ended DNA.
Tth DNA Ligase catalyzes the NAD-dependent formation of phosphodiester bonds between adjacent 3’-hydroxyl and 5’-phosphate termini in double stranded DNA. It is not active against single stranded DNA or RNA and blunt ended DNA. Enzyme is isolated from Escherichia coli strain containing plasmid carrying the Thermus thermophilus DNA ligase gene.
Tth DNA Ligase is stable and active in optimum ligation temperature range of 45 – 65°C, which is 7 – 10°C higher than that of T4 DNA ligase. The final reaction ligation temperature is determined by the Tm of the substrates. High ligation temperature eliminates the nonspecific ligation.
- NAD-dependent recombinant DNA ligase derived from Thermus thermophilus and over-expressed in E. coli.
- High thermostability allows ligation using high-stringency hybridization conditions.
- High specificity and stringency permits sensitive detection of SNPs.
- Equivalent of Ampligase® (Epicentre).
- Ligase Chain Reaction (LCR)
- Ligase Detection Reaction (LDR)
- Next-Generation DNA Sequencing (NGS)
- Repeat Expansion Detection (RED).
- Rolling Circle Amplification (RCA)
- Proximity Ligation Assay (PLA)
Up to twenty freeze/thaw cycles will not compromise 10x Tth Ligation Buffer performance.
One unit of Tth DNA Ligase catalyzes the ligation of 50% of the cos sites present in 1 μg of bacteriophage lambda DNA in 1 minute at 45°C.
1 U (Unit) of Tth DNA Ligase = 1 Ampligase ® Unit = 15 cohesive end units (CEU).
