Cat. No. AB-RK20545 (Data sheet)Taq Antibody is a mouse monoclonal antibody that specifically binds to Taq DNA polymerase. When this antibody is bound to Taq, the enzyme is rendered inactive. It provides an antibody-mediated hot start that enhances the specificity and sensitivity of PCR. Inhibition is completely reversed when the temperature is raised during the first denaturing step of thermal cycling.
|Applications||Multiplex PCR, Specialty PCR, PCR , Routine PCR|
|Unit Definition||One unit is defined as the amount of antibody required to inhibit greater than 90% one unit of Taq DNA polymerase after a 10 minute incubation at 55°C.|
