Atlas HotTaq DNA Polymerase


– Polymerase chain reaction setup at room temperature.

– Effective incorporation of modified nucleotides.


Atlas HotTaq DNA Polymerase catalyzes 5´ to 3´synthesis of DNA. The enzyme has been proved not having the 3´ to 5´ exonuclease activity. Prior the first PCR step the Atlas HotTaq DNA Polymerase should be activated by 15 minute incubation at 95-97°C.

Concentration: 10 units/µl

Unit definition: One unit of the enzyme catalyzes the incorporation of 10 nanomoles of deoxyribonucleotides into a polynucleotide fraction in 30 min at 70°C.

Source: Recombinant E. coli strain with cloned gene encoding Thermus aquaticus DNA polymerase.

Quality control: Free of detectable, non-specific nucleases. Activity and stability tested at 20, 30 and 40 cycles of PCR reaction at 95°C. Tested for the absence of human DNA contamination by PCR with Alu-specific primers.
