The DNA polymerase from the bacterium Thermus aquaticus is very heat stable. It can withstand very high temperatures without denaturing. Denaturing means that the protein structure itself collapses and renders the protein (enzyme) useless and nonfunctional. Another way of saying this is that ...
PCR reactions are emphasized. Why the use of DNA polymerase from the bacterium Thermus aquaticus allow researchers to add the necessary reagents to tubes in a preprogrammed heating block (PCR) is determined.
