Recognition site:


Source: An E.coli strain that carries the cloned Gla I gene from Glacial ice bacterium Gl29

Substrate specificity:

Unit definition: One unit is defined as the amount of enzyme required to hydrolyse completely a unique 5`-G(5mC)G(5mC)-3`/3`-(5mC)G(5mC)G-5` site in 1 μg of pHspAI2 plasmid DNA, which is linearized with GsaI, in 1 hour at 30°C in a total reaction volume of 50 μl. As a result of this site hydrolysis two main DNA fragments (3,419 and 699 bp) are produced (see lanes 3-5 in the figure). GlaI digestion of recognition sequences with three and two 5-methylcytosines results in additional bands appearance (lane 6 in the figure).
