Ampligase® Range

Ampligase Thermostable DNA Ligase catalyses NAD-dependent ligation of adjacent 3'-hydroxylated and 5'-phosphorylated termini in duplex DNA structures that are stable at high temperatures

BioSearch Tech (Lucigen/Epicentre)

Ampligase® Thermostable DNA Ligase catalyses NAD-dependent ligation of adjacent 3'-hydroxylated and 5'-phosphorylated termini in duplex DNA structures that are stable at high temperatures. Derived from a thermophilic bacterium, the enzyme is stable and active at much higher temperatures than conventional DNA ligases. Its half-life is 48 hours at 65°C and greater than 1hour at 95°C.

 

Ampligase® DNA Ligase has been shown to be active for at least 500 thermal cycles (94°C/80°C) or 16 hours of cycling. This exceptional thermostability permits extremely high hybridisation stringency and ligation specificity. Ampligase® DNA Ligase has no detectable activity in ligating blunt-ended DNA and has no activity on RNA or RNA:DNA hybrids.

Unit Definition:

One unit of Ampligase® DNA Ligase catalyses the ligation of 50% of the cos sites in 1µg of lambda DNA in 1 minute at 45°C in 1X Ampligase® Reaction Buffer.

Note:

One unit of Ampligase® DNA Ligase is equivalent to at least 15 of the 'cohesive end units' or 'nick ligation units' defined elsewhere.

Storage Buffer:

50% glycerol containing 50mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.5), 0.1 M NaCl, 0.1mM EDTA, 1mM DTT, and 0.1% Triton® X-100.

Ampligase® 10X Reaction Buffer:

200 mM Tris-HCl (pH 8.3), 250mM KCl, 100mM MgCl2, 5mM NAD, and 0.1% Triton® X-100.

Quality Control:

Ampligase® Thermostable DNA Ligase is assayed for the absence of blunt-end ligation activity by ligating SmalI-digested bacteriophage lambda DNA at 45°C; ligation occurs only at cos sites as determined by gel electrophoresis. Ampligase® DNA Ligase is free of detectable exo- and endonuclease and RNase activities.

 

Figure 1. Schematic of mutation discovery and screening using ligation amplification Figure 1. Schematic of mutation discovery and screening using ligation amplification. The existence of a point mutation at the site of ligation interferes with oligonucleotide ligation, resulting in no ligation product. The lack of an amplification product indicates the presence of a point mutation at the ligation site. Oligos can also be designed so ligation occurs in the presence of the mutant template

 

Figure 2. Ligation Amplification using Ampligase DNA Ligase 2. Ligation Amplification using Ampligase® DNA Ligase. Oligonucleotides A, B, C, and D from Figure 1 (25 pmoles each) were incubated as in Figure 1 with 5 units of Ampligase DNA Ligase in 25µl of 1 X Ampligase Reaction Buffer, with ( ) or without (-) 0.25 pmole DNA template. The reactions were cycled 40 times for 1 minute at 94°C and 2 minutes at 65°C, then separated by electrophoresis and visualized with ethidium bromide. In the presence of template DNA, the target sequence is amplified by formation of the ligation products A B and C D.
