Human DNA Polymerase β is constitutively expressed in cells and functions by filling in gaps in DNA that are formed following base excision repair. The activity of DNA Polymerase β isnot affected by aphidicolin, an inhibitor of DNA polymerasesα, δ, and ε.
Purified from E. coli containing a recombinant plasmid harboring the human DNA polymerase β gene.
One Unit is the amount of enzyme required to catalyze the incorporation of 1 nmole of dNTP into an acid-insoluble form in 1 hour at 37°C.
The enzyme can fill small gaps (up to 6 nucleotides) and nicks in DNA, catalyze DNA synthesis after base excision repair, and release 5'-terminal deoxyribose phosphate residues from incised AP sites.
1X REC Buffer 8 (50 mM Tris-Cl (pH 8.8), 10 mM MgCl2, 10 mM KCl, 1.0 mM DTT, 1%glycerol) 50 μM dCTP, 50 μM dGTP, 50 μM dATP, 50 μM α-32P-dTTP, and 100 μg/ml ofActivated DNA (Catalog # 4667-50-06 see page 128) in a reaction volume of 100 μl are incubated for 5 min at 37°C.
20 mM Tris-Cl (pH 7.8), 1.0 mM DTT, 1 mM EDTA, 100 mM NaCl, and 50% (v/v) glycerol.
Store at -20°C in a manual defrost freezer.
