T4 RNA Ligase 1 (ssRNA Ligase)

Contact us

T4 RNA Ligase 1 catalyzes the ligation of a 5'-phosphoryl-terminated nucleic acid donor to a 3'-hydroxyl-terminated nucleic acid acceptor through the formation of a 3' -5' phosphodiester bond, with hydrolysis of ATP to AMP and PPi. Substrates include single-stranded RNA and DNA as well as dinucleoside pyrophosphates.

- Labeling of 3'-termini of RNA with 5'-[32P] pCp
- Inter- and intramolecular joining of RNA and DNA molecules
- Synthesis of single-stranded oligodeoxyribo-nucleotides
- Incorporation of unnatural amino acids into proteins
- Ligation of ssRNA and DNA
