Recognition sequence: 5′-G/GATCC-3′
Cutting results: a 2-10-fold Bam HI overdigestion of 1 μg λ DNA substrate results in 100% cutting
Heat inactivation: 60 °C for 15 minutes.
Star activity: To prevent star activity, avoid suboptimal reaction conditions containing low salt concentration, high glycerol (>5%) and high pH 8.0.


BamHI is a DNA restriction endonuclease that is used in molecular biology applications to cleave DNA at the recognition sequence 5′-G/GATCC-3′ to generate 5′-cohesive termini.

Mammalian cells repair DNA double-strand breaks by illegitimate end-joining or by homologous recombination. We investigated the effects of restriction enzymes on illegitimate and homologous DNA integration in mammalian cells. A plasmid containing the neo(R) expression cassette, which confers G418 resistance...
