ZymoTaq DNA Polymerase contains all the reagents needed to perform â€œhot-startâ€ PCR. The inclusion of a heat-activated, thermostable DNA polymerase reduces primer dimer and nonspecific product formation that can occur during PCR. This unique product is specifically designed for the amplification of bisulfite-treated DNA for methylation detection, but is applicable for conventional PCR. The product generates specific amplicons with little or no by-product formation. Simple and easy to use: Heat at 95Â°C for 10 minutes to initiate polymerization. ZymoTaq DNA Polymerase is a heat-activated, â€œhot startâ€ polymerase that has 3â€²-terminal transferase activity. The addition of â€œAâ€ overhangs to amplified DNA makes it ideal for use in TA-cloning.
