|Source||Kocurea rosea 307|
|Substrate specificity||The enzyme cleaves C5-methylated DNA and doesn't cut unmodified DNA . |
Kro I doesn`t cleave DNA modified with MspI DNA-methyltransferase
|Assayed on||DNA pMHpaII 1/DriI is a linearized plasmid pMHpaII 1.
pMHpaII 1 carries a gene of DNA-methyltransferase M.HpaII, which methylates sites 5`-CCGG-3` producing 5`-C(5mC)GG-3`/3`-GG(5mC)C-5`, and includes three canonical sites |
|Unit definition||One unit is defined as the amount of enzyme required to hydrolyze completely 1 μg of linearized plasmid pMHpaII 1 in 1 hour at 37°C in a total reaction volume of 50 μl.
