|T4 Polynucleotide Kinase (T4 PNK) catalyzes the transfer and exchange of Pi from the γ position of ATP to the 5' -hydroxyl terminus of polynucleotides (double-and single-stranded DNA and RNA) and nucleoside 3'-monophosphates. T4 Polynucleotide Kinase also catalyzes the removal of 3'-phosphoryl groups from 3'-phosphoryl polynucleotides, deoxynucleoside 3'-monophosphates and deoxynucleoside 3'-diphosphates. T4 PNK is applicable to end-labeling DNA or RNA for probes and DNA sequencing, addition of 5'-phosphates to oligonucleotides to allow subsequent ligation and removal of 3'-phosphoryl groups.
