DNA fragment purification

High Efficient DNA Fragment purification Kit

MagExtractor

-PCR & Gel Clean up-
(click here)

  • Extracts DNA fragments from ≤ 100 μl PCR solutions or enzyme solutions (e.g., restriction enzyme and alkaline phosphatase) within 5 minutes.
  • Extracts DNA fragment from ≤ 0.3 g agarose gel slices (TAE or TBE) within 15 minutes. Agarose slices can be melted at room temperature; it is not necessary to use a heating block.
  • Typical yields from solution or gel slices are approx. 60-70%. DNA fragments approx. 100 bp to 50 kb can be effectively recovered. Small fragments (< 40 bp) are removed.
  • Purified DNA fragments can be applied to sequencing, restriction enzyme treatment, labeling, ligation, transformation, etc. RI-labeled probes can also purified with this kit.

Code No. NPK-601 200 preparation


MagExtractor -PCR & Gel Clean up- provides a simple and reliable method for the rapid purification of DNA fragments from a PCR solution, enzyme solution, or agarose gel slices utilizing magnetic silica beads. This kit is based on binding properties of DNA to a silica surface in the presence of chaotropic agents. The purified DNA fragments can be used directly for general molecular biology experiments.

  • The blunting step makes use of KOD DNA polymerase that exhibits 5'→3' polymerase and 3'→5' exonuclease activities.
  • The blunting step is completed within 2 min.
  • A highly efficient premixed ligation reagent, "Ligation high" is included in this kit.
  • A control reaction can be performed using the control DNA provided.

Code No. BLK-101 20 reactions


Blunting high is a kit that produces a blunt end at the DNA terminus, and allows for its use in a subsequent ligation step using KOD DNA polymerase1 and DNA ligase reagents, respectively.

  • Ligation step can be completed in 5 min with high efficiency.
  • PCR products can be used without purification.

TArget Clone [Code No. TAK-101] can be applied to the TA cloning of PCR products amplified using Taq DNA polymerase, Blend Taq [Code No. BTQ-101], Blend Taq -Plus- [Code No. BTQ-201] or KOD Dash [Code No. LDP-101]. Almost all PCR products having dA overhanging at the 3'end are available.

High efficient TA cloning kit for KOD products

TArget Clone -Plus-

  • Can be applied to the TA cloning of blunt-end PCR products of KOD DNA polymerase.
  • Ligation step can be completed in 5 min with high efficiency.
  • PCR products can be used without purification.

TArget Clone -Plus- [Code No. TAK-201] can be applied to the TA cloning of blunt-end PCR products amplified using KOD -Plus- [Code No. KOD-201] or KOD FX [Code No. KFX-101]. TArget Clone -Plus- contains 10xA-attachment mix. This reagent is a mixture of anti-KOD DNA polymerase antibody specific to KOD 3'→5' exonuclease activity (proof-reading activity) and Taq DNA polymerase, which exhibits terminal transferase activity. The 10 x A-attachment mix allows for blunt end PCR products to acquire overhanging dA at the 3'-ends

  • The attachment reaction is completed in 10 minutes at 60ºC.
  • The cloning efficiency of dA attached PCR products is as great as that of PCR products of Taq DNA polymerase.

Code No. TAK-301 25 reactions


10 x A-attachment mix is a reagent consists of the anti-KOD DNA polymerase antibody for the 3'→5' exonuclease activity (proof-reading activity) of the enzyme, and Taq DNA polymerase exhibits the terminal transferase activity. The PCR products from KOD -Plus- [Code No. KOD-201] and KOD FX [Code No. KFX-101] have blunt ends due to the 3'→5' exonuclease activity of KOD DNA polymerase. 10 x A-attachment mix allows the PCR products to acquire overhanging dA at the 3'-ends. The products having 3'-dA overhang can be directly cloned into arbitrary T-vectors using ligation reagents such as Ligation high Ver.2 [Code No. LGK-201].

Site-directed mutagenesis

Site-directed mutagenesis kit

KOD -Plus- Mutagenesis Kit

  • Applicable for various mutations, such as substitutions, insertions, and deletion mutations.
  • High efficiency (95% maximum) can be obtained.
  • Simple protocol facilitates speedy experiments. Phosphorylated primers are not required.

Code No. SMK-101 20 reactions


KOD -Plus- Mutagenesis Kit is an inverse PCR (iPCR)-based site-directed mutagenesis kit using KOD DNA polymerase as a high-fidelity PCR enzyme. This reagent was developed based on a highly efficient PCR reagent, "KOD-Plus- (Code No. KOD-201)", which consists of KOD DNA polymerase and anti-KOD DNA polymerase antibodies for Hot Start PCR. This kit enables not only the introduction of point mutations, but also the introduction of large insertions and deletions. The PCR fidelity of KOD-Plus- is greater than Taq DNA polymerase (ca. 80-fold); therefore, unexpected, 2nd-site mutations can be reduced. PCR reactions can be performed using standard PCR primers and do not require phosphorylated primers, because this protocol contains a 'Phosphorylation Step' of PCR products.
