(Cat. No.: E002)
Pfu DNA Polymerase is a thermostable
enzyme of approximately 90kDa isolated
from Pyrococcus furiosus. The enzyme
replicates DNA at 75oC,
catalyzing the polymerization of
nucleotides into duplex DNA in the 5´-3´
direction in the presence of magnesium.
Pfu DNA Polymerase also possesses 3´-5´
exonuclease (proofreading) activity.
Base misinsertions that may occur during
polymerization are rapidly excised by
the proofreading activity of the
polymerase. Consequently, Pfu DNA
Polymerase is recommended for use in PCR
and primer extension reactions that
require high-fidelity synthesis. Pfu DNA
Polymerase-generated PCR fragments are
strain Vc1 DSM3638.
High Fidelity: Pfu
DNA Polymerase exhibits the lowest error
rate of any thermostable DNA polymerase.

Pfu DNA Polymerase is recommended
for use in PCR, primer extension
reactions and other applications that
demand high fidelity.
