DNase ILieferant: Thermo Fisher Scientific
EN0525EA 76.5 EUREN0525
DNase I, RNase-free is an endonuclease that digests single- and double-stranded DNA. It hydrolyses 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 one or two nucleotide overhangs.
Applications include: Preparation of DNA-free RNA; Removal of template DNA following in vitro transcription; Preparation of DNA-free RNA prior to RT-PCR and RT-qPCR; DNA labeling by nick-translation in conjunction with DNA Polymerase I; Studies of DNA-protein interactions by DNase I, RNase-free footprinting; Generation of a library of randomly overlapping DNA inserts (reaction buffer containing Mn²+ is used).
