T3 DNA Ligase


T3 DNA Ligase catalyzes the formation of a phosphodiester bond between a 5′ phosphate and a 3′ hydroxyl terminus in duplex DNA. The enzyme joins blunt ends and cohesive ends as well as repair single stranded nicks in duplex DNA.

T3 DNA Ligase joins blunt ends and cohesive ends as well as repairs single-stranded nicks in duplex DNA. In the absence of 20-30% PEG 6000, T3 DNA Ligase displays a very low efficiency for blunt-ended ligation(1). T3 DNA Ligase displays a higher efficiency for joining A/T overhangs than C/G matched ends(1). T3 DNA Ligase retains 95% of its activity in 1.0 M NaCl or KCl, with an optimal concentration of 300 mM(1).

Catalyzes the formation of a phosphodiester bond between a 5′-phosphate and a 3′-hydroxyl terminus in duplex DNA.

A recombinant E. coli strain carrying the T3 DNA Ligase gene.

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: 30,000 Weiss Unit/mg

Recommended Storage Condition: -20°C
