Due to its thermostable nature, Thermotoga neapolitana DNA polymerase (Tne) was identified(1) as an enzyme that is able to withstand the protein-denaturing conditions (high temperature) required during PCR(2). Similar to E. coli DNA polymerase I, but unlike Taq DNA polymerase, Tne DNA polymerase contains both 3′-> 5′ and 5′-> 3′- exonulease activities. Therefore,  it replaced the DNA polymerase from E. coli originally used in PCR (3). Taq‘s optimum temperature for activity is 75-80°C, with a half-life of 9 minutes at 97.5°C, and can replicate a 1000 bp strand of DNA in less than 10 seconds at 72°C(4). The DNA products have an A (adenine) overhangs at their 3′ ends. This may be useful in TA cloning, whereby a cloning vector (such as a plasmid) that has a T (thymine) 3′- overhang is used, which complements with the A overhang of the PCR product, enabling ligation of the PCR product into the plasmid vector.
