DNA Polymerase I is a DNA polymerase with 5´→3´ and 3´→5´ exodeoxyribonuclease activities. DNA Polymerase I also incorporates biotinylated nucleotides.

Applications—DNase I-dependent nick translation, second-strand synthesis in cDNA cloning, fill-in of 5´ overhangs
Source—purified from E. coli expressing the DNA Polymerase I gene on a plasmid

Performance and quality testing

Endodeoxyribonuclease assay; efficiency of DNase I-dependent nick translation determined.

Unit definition
