Nru I Technical BrochureTechnical Brochure
NruI is a restriction enzyme purified from Nocardia rubra.


Unit substrate: Lambda DNA.


Unit calculation assay conditions: 100 mM KCl, 50 mM Tris-HCl (pH 8.0 @ 25oC), 10 mM MgCl2, 100 μg/ml bovine serum albumin and DNA. Incubate at 37oC.


Absence of contaminants: 80 units of Nru I do not produce any unspecific cleavage products after 16 hrs incubation with 1 μg of Lambda DNA at 37oC. After 10-fold overdigestion with Nru I, less than 20% of the DNA fragments can be ligated.


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


Heat inactivation: 65oC for 20 minutes.


Methylation Sensitivity:

dam methylation: Blocked by overlapping

dcm methylation: Not sensitive

CpG methylation: Blocked


Star activity: Large excess of the enzyme results in the appearance of star activity.
