AccuPrime GC-Rich DNA Polymerase is designed to provide high-yield, high-specificity amplification of difficult-to-amplify templates, such as those with >65% GC content. The kit offers a choice of buffers for amplifying genomic DNA targets (Buffer A) or non-GC-rich cDNA, plasmid, and lambda-based targets (Buffer B).
- Yield: high yields for targets up to 5kb in length
- Specificity: AccuPrime accessory proteins for improved PCR specificity
- Sensitivity: sensitivity down to 5ng of template DNA
- Robust and specific amplifications
- Built-in hot start
The AccuPrime buffers contain thermostable proteins that enhance primer-template hybridization during PCR, increasing the specificity of the reaction. The polymerase itself, from the archaebacterium Pyrolobus fumarius, has a five-fold better processivity than Taq DNA polymerase, and remains active even after 4 hours at 95°C.
One unit of AccuPrime GC-Rich DNA Polymerase is the amount of enzyme required to incorporate 10nmoles of dNTPs into acid-insoluble material in 30 minutes at 74°C.
