RsaI Technical Brochure Technical Brochure
 RsaI is a restriction enzyme purified from Rhodopseudomonas sphaeroides.

 

Unit substrate: Lambda DNA.

 

Unit calculation assay conditions: 50 mM NaCl, 10 Tris-HCl (pH 7.9 @ 25°C), 10 mM MgCl2, 1 mM dithiothreitol, 100 μg/ml BSA. Incubate at 37°C.

 

Absence of contaminants: 400 units of Rsa I do not produce any unspecific cleavage products after 16 hrs incubation with 1 μg of λ DNA at 37oC.  After 10-fold overdigestion with Rsa I, greater than 95% of the DNA fragments can be ligated and recut with this enzyme.

 

Storage buffer: 50 mM KCl, 10 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.4), 0.1 mM EDTA, 1 mM dithiothreitol, 200 μg/ml BSA and 50% glycerol. Store at -20oC.

 

Heat inactivation: 65oC for 20 minutes.

 

Methylation Sensitivity:

dam methylation: Not sensitive

dcm methylation: Not sensitive

CpG methylation: Blocked by some combinations of overlapping

 

Note: Cleaves single-stranded DNA slowly.
