Mbo I Technical BrochureTechnical Brochure
MboI is a restriction enzyme purified from Moraxella bovis (ATCC 10900).


Unit substrate: Lambda DNA (dam-).


Unit calculation assay conditions: 100 mM KCl, 10 mM Tris-HCl (pH 8.0 @ 25°C), 10 mM MgCl2, 1mM dithiothreitol, 100 μg/ml BSA. Incubate at 37°C.


Absence of contaminants: 20 units of Mbo I do not produce any unspecific cleavage products after 16 hrs incubation with 1 μg of λ DNA (dam) at 37oC. After 10-fold overdigestion with Mbo 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: Blocked

dcm methylation: Not sensitive

CpG methylation: Impaired by overlapping
