DNA Polymerase I (E. coli)

DNA Polymerase I (E. coli)

Product Overview:

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.

Data Sheet


  • High-percentage incorporation of radioactivity for nick translation assays.
  • Manufacturing of alternating copolymers such as poly d(A-T) and homopolymers such as poly dG-poly dC.
  • Klenow fragment: DNA sequencing, fill-in of 5’ overhangs and removal of 3’ overhangs to form blunt ends and second strand synthesis in mutagenesis.

Quality Control

  • Absence of conversion of covalently closed circular DNA to nicked DNA after incubation of 20 units of DNA polymerase I with 1 µg of pUC18 DNA for 4 hours at 37 °C.

Storage, Shipping & Guarantee​

  • Shipped in: Gel pack.
