The Takara-brand LA PCR Kit, Version 2.1 includes all the reagents needed for amplification of long DNA templates. With this kit, amplification of products up to 30 kb in length is routine. For some DNA templates, amplification of up to 48 kb is possible during long PCR. This long range PCR kit combines the TaKaRa LA Taq enzyme with an optimized buffer system, resulting in longer and more accurate PCR products compared with conventional PCR kits. High fidelity PCR (6.5-fold higher than conventional Taq DNA Polymerase) is facilitated by the efficient 3' to 5' exonuclease activity of LA Taq enzyme. The Long Range PCR Kit contains a control template and primers to ensure optimal PCR performance during long PCR.

PCR Properties

PCR products generated with TaKaRa LA Taq DNA Polymerase contain a mixture of 3'-A overhangs and blunt ends, resulting in >80% cloning efficiency in T-vectors. However, the efficiency of cloning longer products (>5 kb) into T-vectors is quite low.
