Deoxyribonuclease I from Bovine Pancreas min. 3000 Kunitz units/mglyophil.

(DNase I, Deoxyribonucleodepolymerase, Deoxyribonucleate 5'-oligo-nucleotide hydrolase, Desoxyribonuclease, Nuklease, Ribonuklease, )
EC 31 000 CAS [9003-98-9]

Deoxyribonuclease I, or DNase I is an endonuclease that acts on phosphodiester bonds adjacent to pyrimidines to produce polynucleotides with terminal 5′-phosphates. It cleaves preferentially double-stranded DNA and in the presence of Mg2+ single stranded DNA.

  • Used to nick DNA as a first step to incorporate labelled bases into DNA
  • Suitable for DNase footprinting
  • Improves yield in primary cell isolation by removing extracellular DNA
  • Decreases viscosity in protein samples by removal of DNA contamination

Unit definition: 1 Kunitz unit catalyzes an increase in absorption of 0.001 at 260 nm per minute at 25 °C, pH 5.0 when acting on highly polymerized calf thymus DNA (1).
Activity: min. 3000 Kunitz units/mg lyophilisate
