DNA polymerase from Thermus aquaticus has become a common reagent in molecular biology because of its utility in DNA amplification and DNA sequencing protocols. A simplified method is described here for isolating the recombinant Taq enzyme after overproduction in Escherichia coli. Purification requires 8 to 10 h and entails heat treating and clearing the E. coli lysate, followed by precipitation of the enzyme with polyethyleneimine and elution from Bio Rex 70 ion exchange resin in a single salt step. The resulting enzyme preparation contains a single, nearly homogeneous protein consistent with the previously established size of the Taq DNA polymerase in a yield of 40-50 mg of protein per liter of cell culture.
