  • Gene
    Antibody Type
    Serratia marcescens
    Escherichia coli (E. coli)
    DNA Modification (DNA Mod)
    One unit will digest sonicated salmon sperm DNA to acid-soluble oligonucleotides equivalent to a ΔA260 of 1.0 in 30 min at pH 8.0 at 37 ℃, which corresponds approximately to complete digestion of 37 μg DNA. Note that 1 KU=1000 units.
    Ultra Pure Grade
  • Application Notes
    Its high intrinsic activity and broad substrate tolerance make the endonuclease an ideal tool in a variety of biotechnological and pharmaceutical applications: removal of nucleic acid from protein samples (Elimination of nucleic acids from recombinant proteins, Purification of protein fragments from inclusion bodies, Sample preparation in western blotting or twodimensional gel electrophoresis), Viscosity reduction in protein extracts.
    Reagent Preparation

    Reaction buffer:50 mM Tris-HCl, 1 mM MgCl2, pH 8.0 (In the case of extensive dilution before use, carrier protein such as 0.1 mg/ml HSA or BSA is generally recommended to avoid any enzyme loss from surface adsorption)
    DNA Substrate: 1 mg/ml salmon sperm DNA is dissolved overnight at 4 ℃, in reaction buffer, and is then sonicated on ice to obtain a homogenous solution.
    Enzyme: Different dilution of nuclease with reaction buffer
    Stop reagent: Trichloroacetic acid (TCA)

    Assay Procedure

    Measurement of activity: The activity of any unknown nuclease can be determined from a single measurement by means of the standard curve. The specific activity of BenzNuclease is >1.5 x 10 e6 unit/mg protein.

    Calculation of Results

    Standard curve establishment:
    - 400 μl substrate + 100 μl enzyme of known activity = 500 μl mixture
    - Incubate the mixture at 37℃ for 30 min.
    - Stop the reaction by addition of 400 μl cold TCA and incubate on ice for 10 min.
    - Centrifuge at 8500 g for 5 min.
    - Measure the absorbance of supernatant at 260 nm.
    - Lot a standard curve with nuclease of known activities for each set of measurements.
