Technical BrochureTechnical Brochure

MspCI is a restriction enzyme purified from Micrococcus species.


Unit substrate: Lambda DNA (Hind III digest).


Unit calculation assay conditions: 150 mM NaCl, 10 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.9 @ 25°C), 10 mM MgCl2, 1 mM dithiothreitol, 100 μg/ml BSA. Incubate at 37oC.


Absence of contaminants: 80 units of MspCI do not produce any unspecific cleavage products after 16 hrs incubation with 1 μg of λ DNA/Hind III digest at 37oC. After 10-fold overdigestion with MspCI, 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 7.9 @ 25°C), 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: Not sensitive
