This product was discontinued on 12/31/2020 and replaced with the High Fidelity version, BsaI-HFv2 (NEB #R3733).
Attention Golden Gate Assembly users: BsaI-HFv2 (NEB #R3733) has been optimized for Golden Gate Assembly*. BsaI-HFv2 also works well for any protocol requiring DNA cutting by BsaI. This is the recommended enzyme for any purpose requiring digestion at the recognition sequence ...5′-GGTCTC(N1)/(N5)-3′...
*The requirements for digestion of DNA during Golden Gate Assembly are more demanding than what is encountered in traditional DNA cloning. For Golden Gate, the enzyme must function well in a buffer that might not be the same buffer as that normally provided for the restriction enzyme, and maintain activity for an extended time at elevated temperatures in a dynamic cutting/re-ligating reaction with competition for substrate binding between the endonuclease and ligase. Extensive testing has demonstrated superior performance of BsaI-HFv2 compared to both BsaI (NEB #R0535) and BsaI-HF (NEB #R3535) in this challenging Golden Gate assembly context where restriction enzyme efficiency and fidelity are critically important.
Having supplied restriction enzymes to the research community for over 45 years, NEB has earned the reputation of being the leader in enzyme technologies. Working continuously to be worthy of that distinction, NEB strives to develop enzymes of the highest purity and unparalleled quality.
