HotBegan™ Hot Start Taq-DNA Polymerase, MasterMix
For a Specific, Highly Efficient & Reliable Amplifications of DNA up 160 fg in Ready-to-use Format
HotBegan™ Hot Start Taq DNA Polymerase MasterMix an optimized ready-to-use solution containing HotBegan™ Taq DNAPolymerase (hot start performance), dNTPs, MgCl2 and Stabilizers. It is inactive at Room Temperature and includes all material needed except Template and Primers.
It is a Horse-Power™ Taq DNA Polymerase bound to a proprietary antibody that blocks polymerase activity until a denaturation step occurs. The heat-labile antibodies are rapidly inactivated by raising the temperature (4 minutes at 95-97 °C). This prevents or minimizes primer-dimer and non-specific products.
Like Horse-Power™ Taq DNA Polymerase, the enzyme has 5’→3’ polymerase activity and a weak 5’→3’ exonuclease activity but no 3’→5’ exonuclease activity (proofreading). Before enzyme activation none of the enzyme activities are detectable.
