Exonuclease I , E.coli

Exonuclease I (Exo I) digests single-stranded DNA in a 3'→ 5' direction

BioSearch Tech (Lucigen/Epicentre)

Exonuclease I (Exo I) digests single-stranded DNA in a 3'→5' direction. Although it requires the presence of magnesium and a free 3'-hydroxyl terminus for activity, Exo I is active under a wide variety of buffer conditions and can be added directly into most reaction mixes. Exo I can be heat-inactivated by incubation at 80°C for 15 minutes. 

Figure 1. Specificity of Exonuclease I for ssDNA. 200 ng of EcoR I-linearized pUC19 dsDNA and 1 µg of a 100-mer ssDNA oligo were mixed in 1X TA Buffer and incubated at 37°C for 20 min in the absence or presence of 10 units of Exonuclease I. As seen on this 1% agarose gel, Exonuclease I completely digested the linear ssDNA oligo, but left the linearized plasmid dsDNA intact. Lane 1, size markers; Lane 2, minus Exo I; Lane 3, plus Exo I.

 

 

Unit Definition

One unit catalyses the release of 10nmoles of acid-soluble nucleotides from heat-denatured calf thymus DNA in 30 minutes at 37°C in 33 mM Tris-acetate, pH 7.8, 66mM potassium acetate, 10mM magnesium acetate, and 0.5mM DTT. 

Storage Buffer

50% glycerol containing 50mM Tris-HCl, pH 7.5, 0.1 M NaCl, 0.1mM EDTA, 1mM DTT, and 0.1% Triton® X-100. 

Quality Control

Exonuclease I is tested in degradation of single-stranded DNA and is free of detectable RNase, endonuclease, and double-stranded exonuclease activities.
