Specificity

Recognition sequence: 5′-G/AATTC-3′
Cutting results: a 2-10-fold EcoR I overdigestion of 1 μg λ DNA substrate results in 100% cutting
Heat inactivation: 65 °C for 20 minutes.

Application

EcoRI is a restriction endonuclease that is used in molecular biology applications to cleave DNA at the recognition site 5′-G/AATTC-3′, generating fragments with 5′-cohesive termini.

Other Notes

Supplied with 10x Restriction Enzyme Buffer SH (B3657).
Comment: Avoid suboptimal reaction conditions such as low salt, high pH (>8.0) and high glycerol (>5%) as they will alter EcoRI specificity and precipitate star activity.

Unit Definition

One unit is the enzyme activity that completely cleaves 1 mg of λDNA in 1 hour at 37 °C in a total volume of 50 ml of 1x digestion buffer SH for restriction enzymes. 1 mg pBR322 DNA is digested completely by 2 units of EcoR I.

Physical form

Solution in 10 mM Tris-HCl, pH 7.2 , 1 mM EDTA, 200 mM NaCl , 0.5 mM dithioerythritol, 50% glycerol (v/v), 0.2% Triton X- 100 (v/v), 4°C

Integrating viral vectors are efficient gene transfer tools, but their integration patterns have been associated with genotoxicity and oncogenicity. The recent development of highly specific designer nucleases has enabled target DNA modification and site-specific gene insertion at desired genomic loci.
