PspP I (Sau96 I isoschizomer) Technical BrochureTechnical Brochure
PspPI is a restriction enzyme purified from Psychrobacter immobilis TA137.


Unit substrate: Lambda DNA.


Unit calculation assay conditions: 50 mM NaCl, 10 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.9 @ 25oC), 10 mM MgCl2, 1 mM dithiothreitol, 100 μg/ml bovine serum albumin and DNA. Incubate at 25oC.


Absence of contaminants: 80 units of PspP I do not produce any unspecific cleavage products after 16 hrs incubation with 1 μg of Lambda DNA at 25oC. After 50-fold overdigestion with PspP I, greater than 95% of the DNA fragments can be ligated and recut with this enzyme.


Storage buffer: 50 mM NaCl, 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: 55oC for 15 minutes..


Methylation Sensitivity:

dam methylation: Not sensitive

dcm methylation: Blocked by overlapping

CpG methylation: Blocked by overlapping


Note: Incubation at 37oC results in 60% activity.
