Sal I Technical Brochure Technical Brochure
 SalI is a restriction enzyme purified from Streptomyces albus G.


Unit substrate: Lambda DNA (HindIII 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 37°C.


Absence of contaminants: 400 units of Sal I incubated for 16 hours at 37ºC with 1 μg of λ DNA (HindIII digest) resulted in a DNA pattern free of detectable nuclease degradation as determined by agarose gel electrophoresis. After 50-fold overdigestion with Sal 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, 300 μg/ml bovine serum albumin 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


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