Product Introduction

Having supplied restriction enzymes to the research community for over 40 years, NEB has earned the reputation of being the leader in enzyme technologies.  Working continuously to be worth of that distinction, NEB strives to develop enzyme of the highest purity and unparalleled quality. 

  • Time-Saver™ qualified for digestion in 5-15 minutes
  • 100% activity in CutSmart® Buffer (over 210 enzymes are available in the same buffer) allowing for easier double digests

Notes

  1. For enzymes that cannot be heat-inactivated, we recommend using a column for cleanup (such as the Monarch® PCR & DNA Cleanup Kit), or running the reaction on an agarose gel and then extracting the DNA (we recommend Monarch Gel Extraction Kit), or performing a phenol/chloroform extraction.
  2. BlpI is an isoschizomer of Bpu1102I and EspI.

Faqs & Tech Tips

FAQs

  1. What effect does BSA have on the performance of NEB’s restriction enzymes when included in the new buffers?
  2. Do I have to set-up digests with Time-Saver™ qualified enzymes for 5-15 minutes? Can I digest longer?
  3. How can I access the old NEBuffer Activity Chart?
  4. I tested your restriction enzyme on the substrate DNA recommended by NEB, and it appears to be active, however it does not digest my DNA. What could be the reason?
  5. Why is my Restriction Enzyme not cutting DNA?
  6. Why do I see a DNA smear on an agarose gel after a restriction digest?
  7. Why do I see additional DNA bands on my gel after a restriction digest?
  8. How many nucleotides do I have to add adjacent to the RE recognition site in order to get efficient cutting?
