Details for Product No. ABIN3188191,
Restriction Digest (RD)
Characteristics The DpnI restriction enzyme digests DNA at GmeATC sites, requiring N6-methylation of the adenine residue for activity. DNA purified from a dam+ strain will be a substrate for DpnI due to the adenine methylation. DpnI cleaves hemi-methylated dam sites 60 X more slowly than fully methylated.
Components Enzyme supplied with 10X Reaction Buffer
Unit Definition One unit is defined as the amount of Dpn1 required to digest 1 μg of dam methylated pBR322 DNA in 1 hour at 37°C in a total reaction volume of 50 μl.
