1. Does Bst DNA Polymerase have a 3'->5' proofreading exonuclease activity?

2.What is the difference between Bst DNA Polymerase (regular) and Bst DNA Polymerase, large fragment?
Bst DNA Polymerase, large fragment does not have the N-terminal exonuclease domain, so it not only lacks 3'->5' exonuclease activity, it also lacks 5'->3' exonuclease activity.

3. What is the best temperature range for Bst DNA Polymerase to be used?
The best temperature range is 60-65°C, it has 100% activity. The enzyme also has activity  

4.  What are the benefits of choosing Bst DNA Polymerase?
Bst DNA Polymerase, either regular or large fragment, is good at strand displacement with optimal temperature of 60-65°. This gives researchers a wider range of reaction conditions to optimize strand displacement and primer annealing. This is useful in the design of sequencing strategies as well as isothermal amplification technologies. The elevated reaction temperature facilitates sequencing through GC rich regions.

5. Can Bst DNA Polymerase be used for thermal cycle sequencing?
No, the reaction temperatures are too high for enzyme stability. It becomes inactive at 80°C for 10 minutes.
