  • Offer robust amplification equal to—and in some cases superior to—conventional Taq DNA polymerase
  • Suitable for PCR, two-step RT-PCR, and T-vector cloning
  • Samples can be loaded directly onto a gel after amplification
  • Compatible with PCR enhancers such as betaine and DMSO
  • Premixed, ready-to-use solutions contain GoTaq DNA polymerase, dNTPs, MgCl2, and reaction buffers in a single tube
  • Utilize an optimized enzyme and buffer formulation that offers amplification typically better than standard Taq DNA polymerases
  • Can be directly substituted into existing PCR protocols without the need to change cycling parameters
  • GoTaq Green Master Mix contains a blue dye and a yellow dye that allow the monitoring of progress during electrophoresis
  • Utilize a separate MgCl2 solution to allow for optimization of magnesium concentration
  • Unit Definition: One unit is defined as the amount of enzyme required to catalyze the incorporation of 10nmol of dNTP into acid-insoluble material in 30 minutes at 74°C. The reaction conditions are 50mM Tris-HCl (pH 9.0 at 25°C), 50mM NaCl, 5mM MgCl2, 200μM each of dATP, dCTP, dGTP, dTTP (a mix of unlabeled and [3H]dTTP), 10μg activated calf thymus DNA and 0.1mg/mL BSA in a final volume of 50μL
