HotBegan™ Hot Start Taq DNA Polymerase

HotBegan™ Hot Start Taq DNA Polymerase

For a Specific, Highly Efficient & Reliable Amplifications of DNA up 160 fg

Product Overview:

HotBegan™ Hot Start Taq DNA Polymerase is a specific, highly efficient and sensitive HotStart DNA Polymerase designed to minimize unspecific amplification, improving PCR specificity. 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.

Advantages & Features

  • High specificity: minimizes unspecific amplification.
  • Efficient: prevents or minimizes primer-dimer and nonspecific products.
  • Great sensitivity: amplifies from femptograms of DNA targets.
  • Inactive: at Room Temperature.
  • Optimized: adds extra nucleotides (preferentially adenine) without template at 3´ends leaving 3´overhangs PCR fragments.
  • Powerful: amplification of targets up to 5 kb.
  • Convenient: available in kits and MasterMix solution.
  • Risk-free: product covered by our Quality 100% Guarantee.
