Hot-start MB Taq DNA Polymerase is the optimized mixture of Taq DNA Polymerase and anti- Taq DNA polymerase monoclonal antibodies. Antibodies block polymerase activity during set-up of the PCR reactions at ambient temperature (20-22°C). The inhibition of Taq DNA Polymerase is completely reversed when the temperature is above 70°C. This enzyme is optimal for all Minerva Biolabs products except Onar®EUB.
One unit is defined as the amount of the enzyme required to incorporate 10 nmoles of dNTPs into acid-insoluble DNA fraction in 30 minutes at 72°C.
