Product Details

Taq DNA Polymerase is a thermostable enzyme that catalyzes 5’→3′ synthesis of DNA. The enzyme has no detectable 3’→5′ proofreading exonuclease activity but possesses low 5’→3′ exonuclease activity. DF Taq DNA Polymerase has high processivity up to 5 kb, while it can reliably amplify a substrate as low as 6-12 copies per reaction e.g. 16 S rRNA fragment is consistently detected by PCR containing 1.25 units of DF Taq DNA polymerase in reactions where 10 fg of E.coli genomic DNA standard is added.


The Enzyme is purified from an E. coli strain carrying a plasmid with Taq DNA polymerase gene from Thermus aquaticus YT-1.

* Substrate quantity is mostly dependent on the complexity and the purity of substrate and should be defined after testing for each primer set/substrate combination. For highly pure DNA substrates (OD260/OD280 ~ 2 and OD260/OD230~ 2,2) dissolved in water for molecular biology, 5-10 copies of specific target substrate are enough for end product gel visualization.

PCR recommended conditions:

Initial denaturation95oC5 min
25-35 cycles
Final extension72oC5 min

*Annealing temperature depends on primers’ Tm

Functional Quality Control:

DF Taq DNA Polymerase is tested for performance in the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) using 1.25 units of enzyme to amplify:

  1. a 400-bp region of E.coli ribosomal DNA using 100 fg of E.coli gDNA as substrate in a 25μl reaction. The resulting PCR product is visualized as a single band on agarose gel.
  2. in a 50μl reaction. The resulting PCR product is visualized as a single band on agarose gel.

Other Quality Controls:

Certified as DNase-RNase free using fluorescently labeled RNase and DNase probes. DNA free contamination is tested extensively through PCR for the detection of E.coli 16S ribosomal DNA. More details concerning quality controls could be found in respective Certificate of analysis.
