Taq DNA Polymerase
Taq DNA Polymerase is a thermostable DNA polymerase for everyday routine PCR. Taq DNA Polymerase possesses a 5´→ 3´ polymerase activity and a very low 5´→ 3´ exonuclease activity. The enzyme lacks 3´ → 5´ exonuclease (proofreading) activity. Taq DNA polymerase’s terminal transferase activity of adding a single nucleotide (adenosine) at 3' end of the extension product allows TA cloning of PCR products. Products up to 5 kb can be amplified from templates including genomic and plasmid DNA, bacterial colonies, and cDNA products. It is supplied with 10X Taq Reaction Buffer.
Features and benefits
- Isolated from a recombinant source
- Non-proofreading DNA Polymerase
- Tolerates a wide range of templates
- Suitable for primer extension and TA cloning
- Robust and reliable performance at low price
