Thermostable LF DNA polymerase

Tin exo-LF DNA polymerase, isolated from Thermodesulfatator indicus, has strong strand displacement activity and is thermostable for 10 minutes at 93ºC.

The full length unmodified enzyme possesses both 5’-3’ exonuclease and 3’-5’ exonuclease activities. Tin exo-LF DNA polymerase has been engineered to remove the 5’-3’ exonuclease domain and inactivate the 3’-5’ exonuclease activity. The enzyme has no reverse transcriptase activity.

The thermostability of Tin LF DNA polymerase can be seen in the figure on the left. Tin LF DNA pol can be heated to 93oC for 10 minutes with no loss of activity observed. Template denaturation using a heat step prior to 65C isothermal amplification has been shown to increase target specificity and reduce overall amplification times.

    One sample per organisation - new customers only.
    Isothermal Master Mix samples will be sent as dried reagents only. These require re-suspension before use. Dried reagents perform near identically to the wet reagents but do not require cold shipment or storage.
    Both wet and dry reagents are available for purchase from OptiGene.

    Please only press 'Submit' once.
    You will receive a sample as soon as possible.
