Reagents supplied with: UNotI buffer
Contents 10x UNotI: 500 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.9 at 25 °C), 1000mM NaCl, 50mM MgCl2, 1mg/mL BSA
Activity in Simplebiotech buffers:
Rapid digest within 15 minutes.
10x UNotI buffer 2 µL
DNA (0.5-1µg) 1µL
10 U NotI 1 µL
Nuclease free water 16 µL
Final volume 20µL
Incubate at 37 °C for 15 minutes.
Always add the restriction enzymes as last component. Mix gently but thoroughly by pipetting up and down or flicking. Spin down.
Incubate at 37 °C for 15min. Restriction enzymes are stored in 50% glycerol. The glycerol concentration in the reaction mix should not exceed 10%. When digesting more than 1µg DNA, scale up the restriction mix or prolong the incubation time.
Unit definition: One unit is defined as amount of NotI enzyme required to produce a complete digest of 1 µg Adenovirus-2 DNA DNA in 60 min in a total reaction volume of 50µL under the assay conditions.
Unit substrate: Adenovirus-2 DNA.
Unit calculation assay conditions: 100 mM NaCl, 50 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.9 at 25°C), 5mM MgCl2, 1mM DTT, 100 µg/mL bovine serum albumin.
Absence of contaminants: 50 units of NotI do not produce any unspecific cleavage products after 16 hrs incubation with 1µg of Adeno-2 DNA at 37 °C. After 30-fold overdigestion with NotI, greater than 98% of the DNA fragments can be ligated and recut with this enzyme.
Storage buffer: NotI is supplied in 500 mM KCl, 10 mM TrisHCl (pH 7.4), 0.1 mM EDTA, 1 mM dithiothreitol, 0.1% Triton, 500 μg/ml BSA and 50% glycerol.
Inactivation: Heat to 65 °C for 20 minutes. It is also possible to stop the digest by addition of EDTA to a final concentration of >10mM or SDS to a concentration of 0.1 %. Alternatively use our environmentally friendly 6x orange gel loading buffer. For further enzymatic reactions remove SDS or EDTA by spin column-based PCR purification kit.
