Product Information

Product Overview:

Taq DNA Polymerase is a highly thermostable DNA polymerase isolated from the thermophile, Thermus aquaticus.  Taq DNA polymerase catalyzes the 5’?3’ synthesis of DNA. The enzyme has no detectable 3’?5’ proofreading exonuclease activity, and possesses low 5’?3’ exonuclease activity.  The Taq polymerase is able to amplify DNA up to 6kb that have a single adenine 3’ overhang.  The error rate of this Taq polymerase is ~2.2x10-5 nucleotide-1 cycle-1.


5’?3’ polymerase activity. No detectable 3’?5’ proofreading exonuclease activity. Low 5’?3’ exonuclease activity. Error rate ~2.2x10-5 nucleotide-1 cycle-1Available as a 2X Mastermix.
