Taq Antibody is a mouse monoclonal Antibody against Taq DNA Polymerase and applies to Hot Start PCR. When combined with the Taq DNA Polymerase, Taq Antibody inhibits DNA polymerase activity, which in turn inhibits non-specific annealing of primers and non-specific amplification induced by primer dimers at low temperatures. Taq Antibody denatures during the initial DNA denaturation step of the PCR reaction, when DNA polymerase activity is restored to achieve a heat-start effect. Therefore, there is no need for special inactivation of Taq antibody.
