Endonuclease

Nucleases are enzymes that break down nucleic acids into strands of DNA. 'Endo' or inside nucleases act at points along the strand and thus break DNA into short pieces. Endonucleases recognise a particular base sequence in DNA and cut the DNA. Some endonucleases cut the DNA at a specific point while others randomly split the DNA sequences. Spec

endonuclease

One of a large group of enzymes that cleave nucleic acids at positions within the chain. Some act on both RNA and DNA (eg. S1 nuclease, EC.3.1.30.1, that is specific for single stranded molecules). Ribonucleases such as pancreatic, T1 etc. are specific for RNA, Deoxyribonucleases for DNA. Bacterial restriction endonucleases are crucial in recombina

Endonuclease

Endonucleases are enzymes that cleave the phosphodiester bond within a polynucleotide chain, in contrast to exonucleases, which cleave phosphodiester bonds at the end of a polynucleotide chain. Typically, a restriction site will be a palindromic sequence four to six nucleotides long. Most restriction endonucleases cleave the DNA strand unevenly, l
