E. coli SSB (Single-Stranded DNA Binding) protein


SKU: 02-042 Research Area: Applications:


E. coli single-stranded DNA binding protein (SSB) binds to single-stranded DNA with high specificity (1, 2). It is involved in DNA replication and recombination in vivo. The SSB gene was expressed as the recombinant protein in E. coli then purified. The molecular mass is 18.9 kDa.



  1. Functional single-stranded DNA-binding protein for studying DNA replication and recombination
  2. Enhancement of the specificity and yield of PCR


Quality: Greater than 95% purity as determined by SDS-PAGE (CBB staining). The absence of endonucleases and exonucleases was confirmed.

Form: 5 mg/ml in 20mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.6), 200mM NaCl, 1mM dithiothreitol, 1mM EDTA, 50% glycerol

Storage: -20°C


Data Link: UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot P0AGE0 (SSB_ECOLI)
