Article Title: LraI from Lactococcus raffinolactis BGTRK10-1, an Isoschizomer of EcoRI, Exhibits Ion Concentration-Dependent Specific Star Activity
Figure Lengend Snippet: Determination of the Lra I cleavage site 5′-G/AATTC-3′ of pBluescipt SK+ by DNA sequencing. (a) Sequence of pBluescipt SK+ predigested with Lra I restriction enzyme and (b) with Eco RI obtained using M13R primer. The colour-coded sequence traces are A (green), T (red), C (blue), and G (black). The extra A base was added at the end of the cleaved template by the Taq DNA polymerase used for sequencing due to template-independent terminal nucleotide transferase activity of Taq DNA polymerase.
