DNA Polymerase I (E. coli) (10 U/µL)

DNA Polymerase I is a multifunctional enzyme that combines a DNA polymerase activity, a 5´→ 3´exonuclease activity and a 3’→5′ proofreading exonuclease activity. The 5´→3´ exonuclease activity enables the enzyme to use nicks and gaps in the DNA as starting points for labelling DNA by nick translation.
