What are dNTPs?

dNTPs are the building blocks for DNA synthesis composed of a nitrogenous base that is bound to a deoxyribose with a triphosphate. The four dNTPs used in DNA synthesis are abbreviated based on their nitrogenous based: dATP represents adenine, dCTP represents cytosine, dGTP represents guanine, and dTTP represents thymine.

What does dNTP stand for?

dNTPs stand for deoxyribonucleotide triphosphate, and uses each of the four bases of DNA: dATP for adenine, dCTP for cytosine, dGTP for guanine, and dTTP for thymine.


How much dNTPs are used for PCR?

Most protocols suggest using a final concentration of 200µM for 10mM dNTPs.

The role of dNTPs in PCR?

In PCR, dNTPs function as the building blocks for DNA amplification. Here, the four dNTPS (dATP, dCTP, dGTP and dTTP) are added by Taq polymeras to a template strand of DNA at the corresponding base. Another way of looking at it is the role of dNTPs are to function as the necessary nucleotides to build a growing strand of DNA. The addition of dNTPs along a template strand of DNA in PCR build the second, complementary strand of DNA.

the role of dNTPs in PCR illustration - shows how dNTPS function as the nucleotides of a growing strand of DNA. Here the four DNTPs (dATP, dCTP, dGTP, dTTP) are added by taq polymerase to a template strand of DNA at the corresponding base.


How to store dNTPs?

Store dNTPs at -20°C. With dNTPs, it is very important to avoid freeze/thaw cycles and frequent temperature changes.


How are dNTPs shipped?

To ensure the stability and efficiency of dNTPs, GoldBio ships dNTPs next day on blue ice.
