Klenow Fragment, Exonuclease Minus
DNA Polymerase I Large (Klenow) Fragment, Exonuclease Minus, is a DNA-dependent DNA polymerase that lacks both the 5´?3´ and the 3´?5´ exonuclease activities present in intact E. coli DNA Polymerase I. Klenow Fragment, Exo Minus, is used for random primer labeling, DNA sequencing by the dideoxy method, and in strand displacement amplification (SDA). This enzyme will leave a single-base 3´ overhang on a significant proportion of DNA fragments during fill-in of 5´-overhangs. Therefore, Klenow Fragment, Exonuclease Minus, is not recommended for preparation of blunt-ended fragments for ligation.
