T4 Gene 32 Protein (Single-stranded DNA Binding Protein, SSB)


SKU: 02-040 Research Area: Applications:


T4 gene 32 protein is a single-stranded DNA binding protein from phage T4 which binds to single-stranded DNA with high specificity (1, 2). It is involved in DNA replication and recombination. The T4 phage-derived SSB gene was expressed in E. coli and the protein was highly purified. MW is 33.5 kDa.



  1. Promoting DNA replication and recombination by stabilizing single-stranded DNA (1)
  2. Increase specificity and yields of long PCR products (3)



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

Form: 10 mg/ml in 20mM Tris-HCl (pH 8.0), 100mM NaCl, 0.5mM dithiothreitol, 1mM EDTA, 50% glycerol

Storage: -20°C


Data Link: UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot P03695 (VHED_BPT4)
