Bacteriophage lambda DNA.
Unmethylated cl857ind1Sam7 Bacteriophage lambda DNA (GenBank #NC_001416) is isolated from infected GM 119, an E.coli strain lacking both dam and dcm methylase activities. The DNA is linear and double-stranded with 12 bp single-stranded complementary 5´-ends (cos sites). It has a molecular weight of 31,5x106 Da and contains 48.502 bp.

Store at +4°C to -20°C. Upon storage at +4°C the DNA forms linear aggregates as well as circular structures due to the presence of cohesive termini. Heating of the DNA to75°C for 10 min followed by quick cooling will reversible restore it to its linear form.

Storage buffer
10 mM Tris-HCl pH 7.8, 10 mM NaCl, 1 mM EDTA.
used as substrate for restriction enzymes.

Quality control

spectrophotometric control, absence of contaminating ds nuclease activity, proper restriction fragments.
