Details

Description

  • Multi-subunit enzyme complex isolated from calf thymus glands by immunoaffinity chromatography (1)
  • Exhibits DNA polymerase and primase activities
  • For use in DNA replication experiments requireing a eukaryotic source of DNA polymerase alpha-primase

Unit Definition

One unit is the amount of enzyme required to incorporate 1nmol of total nucleotide into acid-insoluble form at 37°C in 60 minutes

Storage Buffer

20 mM Tris-HCl (pH 8.5)
50 mM KCl
0.25 mM EDTA
1 mM dithiothreitol
50% (v/v) glycerol

Assay Conditions

60 mM Tris-HCl (pH 8.0)
5 mM magnesium acetate
