Technical Brochure Technical Brochure
SlaI is a restriction enzyme purified from Stremptomyces lavendulae.


Unit substrate: Lambda DNA (HindIII digest).


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


Absence of contaminants: 400 units of Sla I do not produce any unspecific cleavage products after 16 hrs incubation with 1 μg of λ DNA (Hind III digest) at 37oC. After 100-fold overdigestion with SlaI, greater than 98% 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: Impaired
