Nae I Technical BrochureTechnical Brochure
NaeI is a restriction enzyme purified from Streptomyces species.


Unit substrate: pBR322 DNA.


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


Absence of contaminants: 50 units of Nae I do not produce any unspecific cleavage products after 16 hrs incubation with 1 μg of pBR322 at 37oC. After 10-fold overdigestion with Nae I, greater than 80% 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

Note: Nae I exhibits site preferences. pBR322 contains four Nae I recognition sequences. Two of these sites are readily cleaved, one is cleaved moderately slowly, and the fourth is cleaved 50-fold more slowly.
