Size

Alkaline Phosphatase, Calf Intestinal (CIAP), catalyzes the hydrolysis of 5'-phosphate groups from DNA, RNA, and ribo- and deoxyribonucleoside triphosphates. This enzyme is used to prevent recircularization and religation of linearized cloning vector DNA by removing phosphate groups from both 5'-termini and may also be used for the dephosphorylation of 5' phosphorylated ends of DNA or RNA for subsequent labeling with [32P]ATP and T4 Polynucleotide Kinase. CIAP is active on 5' overhangs, 5' recessed and blunt ends.
