Tn5 Transposase

Cat No.: TN5-BL01
Transposase tn5
Description QC Data
synonym Tn5; Tn5 Transposase; Transposase (Tnp) Tn5; Dimer_Tnp_Tn5
background Tn5 transposase is a bacterial enzyme that integrates a DNA fragment into genomic DNA, and is used as a tool for detecting nucleosome-free regions of genomic DNA in eukaryotes. Bacterial Tn5 transposase promotes the transposition of the Tn5 transposon. Tn5 transposase integrates DNA fragments at a specific site in the nucleosomal DNA. In the ATAC-seq method, Tn5 transposase has been employed to insert an adaptor DNA fragment in the nucleosome-free DNA regions and linker DNA regions between nucleosomes.
description Magic™ Tn5 Transposase is a naked and hyperactive form of Tn5 transposase. Our Magic Tn5 Transposase can recognize inside, outside and mosaic end sequences of Tn5 transposon.

This product has passed the following quality control assays: functional absence of exonuclease and RNase activities.  Absence of exonucleases activity: Hind III fragments (1 µg) of lambda DNA is incubated with our Tn5 Transposase (20U) in  50µl test buffer, overlaid with paraffin oil, at 37°C for 4 hours. The electrophoretic bands show no obvious alteration.  Absence of RNase activity: E.coli rRNA (250 ng) is incubated with our Tn5 Transposase (100U) in 50µl test buffer, overlaid  with paraffin oil, at 37°C for 2 hours. The degradation of rRNA is less than 1%.
