Supreme NZYLong 2x Colourless Master Mix (MB334)



Description: Supreme NZYLong 2× Colourless Master Mix is a premixed ready-to-use solution containing Supreme NZYLong DNA polymerase (MB331), an engineered version of NZYLong DNA polymerase designed to amplify longer PCR products, generally of 25 kb and beyond, that displays a higher specificity provided by its hot-start-like PCR capacity. This feature is achieved by a novel hot-start technology, which inhibits both polymerase and 3’→5’ exonuclease activities and thus avoids extension of non-specifically annealed primers or primer-dimers, as well as degradation of primers and template DNA during PCR reaction setup. The functional activity of the enzyme is restored during a short 5-minute incubation step at 94 °C. The increased processivity of Supreme NZYLong DNA polymerase combined with the hot-start-like PCR capacity results in higher specificity, sensitivity and yield during the amplification of long nucleic acids. The master mix contains dNTPs, reaction buffer and additives at optimal concentrations for the efficient amplification of a wide range of DNA templates. MgCl2 final concentration is 2.5 mM, allowing the implementation of a variety of PCR protocols.

Supreme NZYLong DNA polymerase generates a mixture of A-overhang-ended (predominantly) and blunt-ended PCR products, being suitable for cloning with NZYTech´s TA PCR cloning kits (MB053 or MB137).

1. What to do when there is no product amplification or low yield?
This can be due to the following situations:
a) Inadequate annealing temperature. The reaction mix composition may affect the melting properties of primers and DNA. Adjust the annealing temperature to accommodate the primer with the lowest melting temperature (5 °C to 10 °C lower than Tm).
b) Presence of PCR inhibitors. Some DNA isolation procedures, particularly genomic DNA isolation, can result in the co-purification of PCR inhibitors. Reduce the volume of template DNA in reaction or dilute template DNA prior to adding to the reaction. Diluting samples even 1:10,000 has been shown to be effective in improving results, depending on initial DNA concentration.
c) Template DNA damaged or degraded. An intact, high-quality template is essential to achieve a reliable amplification of large DNA fragments. Extreme care must be taken in the preparation and handling of DNA. Always use purified high-quality DNA as template.
d) Concentration of magnesium is too low. Mg2+ is included in the Master Mix at a final concentration of 2.5 mM, which is sufficient for most targets. For some targets, higher Mg2+ concentration may be required. Titrate from 2.5 mM to 4 mM (final concentration) in 0.5 mM increments. (Note: MgCl2 is not provided in separate tubes).

2. How can I reduce the number of non-specific bands?
Adjust annealing conditions and/or design another set of primers, by increasing the length and avoiding complementary sequences. Check the quality and concentration of primer solutions.  We recommend to prepare small-volume working aliquots from the stock solution.  Avoid multiple freeze cycles.

3. How should I store my Supreme NZYLong 2× Colourless Master Mix?
The product should be stored at -20 ºC, in a constant temperature freezer.
