For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.



Platinum Taq Antibody is a proprietary inhibitor which, when bound to Taq DNA polymerase, inactivates polymerase activity. This reagent provides an automatic “hot start” for Taq DNA polymerase in PCR. Hot starts are typically used in PCR to increase sensitivity, specificity, and yield while allowing assembly of reactions at ambient temperatures. The extra time, effort, and contamination risks associated with manual hot start procedures are addressed with the use of Platinum Taq Antibody.
Cross Reactivity: Tag
Immunogen: Taq DNA Polymerase
Formulation: 250 units purified antibody in TBS with 1mM DTT, 0.1mM EDTA, 50% glycerol, 2mM Na2PO4 and no preservative; pH 8
Synonyms: Taq DNA polymerase
One unit of Taq DNA polymerase incorporates 10 nmol of deoxyribonucleotide into DNA in 30 minutes at 74°C. One unit is defined as the amount of product required to inhibit one unit of Taq DNA polymerase. PCR Functional Assay Specifications: PCR reactions containing 200 ng, 20 ng and 10 ng of input human genomic DNA yield 40 ng, 10 ng and 5 ng of an 800 bp target, respectively, when observed on an ethidium bromide stained gel. In a radioactive nucleotide incorporation assay, Taq DNA polymerase activity has been successfully inhibited by 10965-010.
