Detailed Description
Samurai Taq™ DNA Polymerase is from Thermus aquaticus. It is a thermostable enzyme with 5’-3’ DNA polymerase activity and 5'-3’ exonuclease activity, while lacking 3’-5’ exonuclease (proofreading) or endo- activity. This enzyme is a recombinant protein produced and purified from an E. coli strain that carries the Taq DNA Polymerase gene from Thermus aquaticus YT-1.

Notes: DNA templates should preferably be pure. Chemical agents, ionic detergents (such as SDS) and other DNA damaging agents should be avoided. For routine applications, 25 to 35 PCR cycles is usually enough to provide sufficient copies of the target sequence.
