DNase I

DNase I

RNAse-Free (10 mg/mL)

Product Overview:

DNase I is a recombinant endonuclease that cleaves DNA preferentially at phosphodiester linkages adjacent to a pyrimidine nucleotide, to release di-, tri- and oligonucleotide products (on average producing tetranucleotides) with 5’-phosphorylated and 3’-hydroxylated ends.

It acts on single-stranded DNA, double-stranded DNA, RNA-DNA hybrids and chromatin. DNase I requires bivalent cations (Mg2⁺ and Ca2⁺) for maximal activity.
