peqGOLD Taq DNA Polymerase is a highly processive 5'→3' polymerase with no 3'→5' exonuclease (proofreading) activity. At 72 °C and around pH 9 conditions, peqGOLD Taq reaches its highest level of activity, capable of amplifying a standard 1 kb strand of DNA in approximately 30 seconds.
- Thermostable polymerase for standard PCR applications
- Also available as 'all inclusive' (with dNTPs) or as 'Hot Start'
peqGOLD Taq is supplied with Buffer Y for maximal yield and Buffer S for specificity, along with Enhancer Solution P which modifies the denaturing characteristics of DNA to improve amplification of difficult templates.
* One unit is defined as the amount of enzyme required to incorporate 10 nmoles of dNTP into acid insoluble material in 30 minutes at 74 °C.
