Invitrogen™ Platinum™ Taq DNA Polymerase
Convenient and reliable “hot start” thermostable DNA polymerase for PCR that provides enhanced specificity over that of Taq DNA Polymerase
Manufacturer: Invitrogen™ 10966018
Use Platinum Taq DNA Polymerase for the amplification of DNA from complex genomic, viral, and plasmid templates, as well as in RT-PCR. The “hot start” property of the enzyme preparation is conferred by thermolabile monoclonal antibodies that render Taq DNA polymerase inactive until the initial PCR denaturation step.
- Convenience: assemble PCR reactions at room temperature
- Specificity: “hot start” kinetics reduce nonspecific primer annealing, improving product yield
- Product size: use for PCR products up to 10kb
- Flexibility: optional KB Extender gives more versatility in PCR assays
Using PlatinumTaq DNA Polymerase
- Just as with Taq DNA Polymerase, Platinum Taq DNA Polymerase has a nontemplate-dependent terminal transferase activity that adds a 3' deoxyadenosine to product ends, and has a 5'→3' exonuclease activity (but not 3'→5' exonuclease activity)
- PCR products generated with PlatinumTaq DNA Polymerase may be used in the same downstream applications without protocol modifications
