Pfu DNA Polymerase is purified from E. coli. expressing a cloned Pyrococcus furiosus DNA polymerase gene. This polymerase possesses a proofreading 3' to 5'. exonuclease activity that provides higher fidelity than Taq. Pfu DNA Polymerase makes it ideal for demanding PCR applications such as site-directed mutagenesis and PCR expression cloning.

One unit of EasyPfu DNA Polymerase incorporates 10 nmol of deoxyribonucleotide into acid-insoluble material in 30 min at 74°C.
50 mM Tris-HCl (pH 8.0), 50 mM KCl, 1 mM DTT, 0.1 mM EDTA, stabilizers, and 50% (v/v) glycerol.
10X EasyPfu Buffer
20mM MgSO4 200mM Tris-HCl (pH 8.8 at 25°C), 100mM (NH4)2SO4, 100mM KCl, 1% (v/v) Triton X-100, 1mg/ml BSA and 20mM MgSO4.
The absence of endodeoxyribonucleases and exodeoxyribonucleases was confirmed by appropriate quality tests. Functionally tested in PCR.
