Product Description

Vaccinia Capping enzyme is a recombinant protein from Vaccinia virus. Vaccinia Capping Enzyme can add 7-methylguanylate cap structure (Cap 0) to the 5' end of RNA. In eukaryotes, these terminal cap structures are involved in stabilization, transport, translation of mRNAs. Vaccinia Capping enzyme is composed of two subunits (D1R, D12L), and has three enzymatic activities (RNA triphosphatase, guanylyltransferase by the D1R subunit and guanine methyltransferase by the D12L subunit). All necessary for addition of a complete Cap 0 structure, m7Gppp5'N). In vitro, transcripts can be capped in the presence of reaction buffer, GTP, and the methyl donor (SAM).
