E.coli RuvC Protein


SKU: 01-011 Research Area: Applications:



E. coli RuvC protein (19 kDa) is a structurally specific endonuclease which binds specifically to the Holliday structure, an intermediate of recombination, at the late stage of homologous recombination and recombination repair and introduces a nick in the symmetrical point of the Holliday junction cleaving and resolving the recombinant (1, 2).




Product: Recombinant E. coli full-size RuvC protein without tag.

Form: 50% glycerol, 10 mM Tris-HCl (pH7.5), 2 mM EDTA, 100 mM NaCl, 5 mM mercaptoethanol

Concentration: 1.0 mg/ml (determined by BCA method)

Storage: Sent at 4℃or at -20℃ and store at -20℃ or -80℃ for longer period.



  • Functional studies in vitro. RuvC cleaves recombination

intermediate at Holliday Junction.

  • Standard antigen for western blotting and ELISA.
