EN0521 DNase I

Description

Thermo Scientific DNase I, RNase-free is an endonuclease that digests single- and double-stranded DNA. It hydrolyzes phosphodiester bonds producing mono- and oligodeoxyribonucleotides with 5′-phosphate and 3′-OH groups.

The enzyme activity is strictly dependent on Ca2+ and is activated by Mg2+ or Mn2+ ions.

In the presence of Mg2+, DNase I cleaves each strand of dsDNA independently in a statistically random fashion. In the presence of Mn2+, the enzyme cleaves both DNA strands at approximately the same site, producing DNA fragments with blunt-ends or with overhang termini of only one or two nucleotides.

Highlights

• Recombinant enzyme
• Purified from non-animal host with a lower level of intrinsic RNases
