Thermolabile USER® II Enzyme
cloned at NEB recombinant neb31 37 65 Heat

We are excited to announce that we are in the process of switching all reaction buffers to be BSA-free. Beginning April 2021, we will be gradually transitioning to buffers containing Recombinant Albumin (rAlbumin) for restriction enzymes and some DNA modifying enzymes. All information on the website has been updated to reflect this change. Find more details at www.neb.com/BSA-free.

Thermolabile USER (Uracil-Specific Excision Reagent) II Enzyme generates a single nucleotide gap at the location of a uracil residue. It can be 100% inactivated at temperatures >65°C

Applications of Thermolabile USER II include:

  • Directional RNA Seq
  • NEBNext adaptor cleavage
  • USER cloning

Thermolabile USER II Enzyme

Mechanism
Antarctic Thermolabile Uracil DNA glycosylase (UDG) catalyzes the excision of a uracil base, forming an abasic (apyrimidinic) site while leaving the phosphodiester backbone intact. The lyase activity of Endonuclease III breaks the phosphodiester backbone at the 3´and 5´ sides of the abasic site. In addition to generating a different a 3´-terminus than USER Enzyme (a 3´-phospho-α, β-unsaturated aldehyde versus the 3´phosphate left by USER® Enzyme, NEB #M5505), Thermolabile USER II Enzyme (NEB #M5508) can also be completely heat inactivated after 10 minutes at 65°C.
