Product Details

SspI is a restriction enzyme purified from Sphaerotilus species. 

Reagents supplied: 10x R3 and 10x EQ buffer

Digest Guidelines

  • Standard reaction conditions: In order to overcome DNA source variability, a ~10 fold overdigest is suggested:
10U Ssp I1μl
10x EQ buffer5μl
DNA substrate1μg
Sterile ultrapure waterUp to 50 μl
  • Speed Digest reaction: Incubate for 15 minutes at 37oC as in standard reaction in 1x R3 buffer (100 mM NaCl, 50 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.9 @ 25°C), 10 mM MgCl2, 100 μg/ml BSA) or 1x eQ buffer (20 mM Tris-acetate (pH 7.9 @ 25oC), 10 mM Mg-acetate, 50 mM K-acetate, 100 μg/ml BSA).

Reactions were performed as for unit definition reaction. The above data could be used as guideline for double digest reactions. Our enzymes are also active and compatible in buffer systems from other vendors.

Heat inactivation: 65oC for 20 minutes

Methylation Sensitivity:

  • dam methylation: Not sensitive
  • dcm methylation: Not sensitive
  • CpG methylation: Not sensitive

Unit calculation assay conditions:

  • 1x R3 buffer
  • Lambda DNA
  • Incubation at 37oC

Storage conditions:

  • 50 mM KCl
  • 10 mM Tris-HCl (pH 8)
  • 0.1 mM EDTA
  • 1 mM dithiothreitol
  • 200 μg/ml BSA
  • 50% glycerol
  • Store at -20oC

Non-specific nuclease activity: 30 units of Ssp I do not produce any unspecific cleavage products after 16 hrs incubation with 1 μg of Lambda DNA at 37°C.

Re-ligation and recut: After 10-fold overdigestion with Ssp I, greater than 95% of the DNA fragments can be ligated and recut with this enzyme.

Star activity: Conditions of low ionic strength, high enzyme concentration, glycerol concentration >5%, or pH >8.0 may result in star activity.
