T4 Polynucleotide Kinase

Details for Product No. ABIN3188238,
Characteristics T4 Polynucleotide Kinase catalyzes the transfer of the γ-phosphate from ATP to the 5´-hydroxyl terminus of double and single-stranded RNA and DNA, oligonucleotides or nucleoside 3´-monophosphates. The enzyme is also capable of catalyzing the removal of 3´-phosphoryl groups from 3´-phosphoryl polynucleotides, deoxynucleoside 3´-monophosphates and deoxynucleoside 3´-diphosphates.
Components Enzyme supplied with 10X Reaction Buffer
Unit Definition One unit is defined as the amount of T4 Polynucleotide Kinase that catalyzes the incorporation of 1 nmol γ-phosphate from ATP to the 5'-hydroxyl termini of micrococcal nuclease-treated DNA in 30 minutes at 37°C in 1X T4 Polynucleotide Kinase Reaction Buffer.

  • Labelling 5'termini of DNA or RNA to be used as:
