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.
Supplied with 10x Restriction Enzyme Buffer SB (B8781).
Solution in 10 mM Tris-HCl, pH 7.4 , 1 mM EDTA, 1mM dithioerythritol, 300 mM KCl, 0.01% Polydocanol (v/v), 50% glycerol (v/v), at 4°C
