1,500 Weiss units, 45,000 Weiss U/m

T7 DNA Ligase catalyzes the formation of a phosphodiester bond between a 5'-phosphate and a 3'-hydroxyl termini in duplex DNA. The enzyme will join blunt ends and cohesive ends termini as well as repair single-stranded nicks in duplex DNA.

- Joining of Okazaki fragments during replication
- Completing short-patch DNA synthesis occurring in DNA repair process

A recombinant E. coli strain carrying the T7 DNA Ligase gene.

Supplied in:
20 mM Tris-HCl
300 mM NaCl
1 mM DTT
0.1 mM EDTA
50% Glycerol

Unit Definition:
One Weiss unit of the enzyme catalyzes the conversion of 1 nmol of [32PPi] into Norit-adsorbable form in 20 min at 37°C.  Enzyme activity is assayed in the following mixture: 66 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.6), 6.6 mM MgCl2, 0.066 mM ATP, 10 mM DTT, 3.3 µM [32PPi].

One Weiss Unit is approximately equivalent to 67 cohesive end units (CEU). Or 1000 CEU = 15 Weiss Unit.

Specific Activity: 45 Weiss U/µg

Recommended Storage Condition:-20°C
