Ligate-IT Rapid Ligation Kit
Can be used for a variety of ligation procedures such as conventional vector cloning, TA cloning, linker or adaptor ligation, and library construction
Ligate-IT™ Rapid Ligation Kit provides high-quality reagents for fast and easy ligation reactions.
Quick and Efficient
Ligation reactions are complete following room temperature incubation in just 5 minutes for cohesive-ends and 10 minutes for blunt-ends (see Figs. 1-2). Transform competent cells immediately or store reactions at -20°C for later transformation.
Ligate-IT Rapid Ligation Kit includes USB T4 DNA Ligase, Nuclease-Free Water, and a specially formulated 5X Reaction Buffer which enhances the activity of T4 DNA Ligase, especially on blunt-end fragments. All of the components are in a ready-to-use format and do not require any additional reagents, such as ATP.
The kit can be used for a variety of ligation procedures such as conventional vector cloning, TA cloning, linker or adaptor ligation, and library construction.
