NEB's Antarctic Phosphatase

Associated protocols

Phosphatase treatment of linearized vector


This enzyme is preferable to either Calf Intestinal Phosphatase or Shrimp Alkaline Phosphatase because it is more easily heat-inactivated. Contaminating enzymatic activity would remove 5' phosphates from the insert in a subsequent ligation reaction, preventing successful ligation. Thus, it is critical that the phosphatase be inactivated, purified away, or digested with Proteinase K.
