Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab3808 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
A unit of topo I can relax 0.2 ug pGEM 5Z DNA in 30 min at 37oC. The enzyme is supplied at a nominal concentration of approximately 2 units/ul.
Quality Control Tests: 1. A test for nuclease contamination is carried out by assaying for the formation of linear KDNA and linear plasmid DNA. Incubation with KDNA or supercoiled pGEM 5Z DNA (4 hrs. at 37ºC in the presence of 10 mM MgCl2) is performed. Linear DNA or breakdown products are not generated under these conditions. 2. A check for cross contamination with Topo II is negative. There must be no decatenation of KDNA in topo II reaction conditions. 3. Performance in converting super-coiled DNA to relaxed DNA.
