Pfu DNA Polymerase

  • High-fidelity thermostable DNA polymerase for error-free polymerase chain reaction.
  • Possess 3′ to 5′ exonuclease activity for proofreading activity
  • Produces blunt-end DNA fragments
  • Originally isolated from hyperthermophilic archaebacterium, Pyrococcus furiosus (Pfu) (Lundberg et al., 1991)
