Cas9 Nuclease, 300 pmoles

The Cas9 protein is a recombinant endonuclease from Streptococcus pyogenes. 

Basic description

The Cas9 protein is a recombinant endonuclease from Streptococcus pyogenes with a molecular weight of 150 kDa. Cas9 endonuclease in complex with RNA guides (crRNA duplex: tracrRNA) or single sgRNA catalyzes site-specific hydrolysis of the phosphodiester bond in double-stranded DNA (Figure). The cleavage is on the DNA chain between the third and fourth nucleotides from the PAM sequence (NGG is a motif adjacent to the protospacer) with the formation of blunt ends. Recombinant Cas9 endonuclease does not contain a nuclear localization sequence.

Source: Cas9 endonuclease purified from E. coli strain containing a plasmid with the cloned full length gene of Cas9 Streptococcus pyogenes.

Quality control. Each batch of the enzyme is tested for enzyme activity, electrophoretic purity, and the absence of non-specific endonuclease activity. The purity of the enzyme is ≥95% (SDS-PAGE), nonspecific endonuclease activity is absent.
