DescriptionDescription: Exonuclease III (E. coli) catalyzes the stepwise removal of mononucleotides from 3`- hydroxyl termini of double stranded DNA. Exonuclease III activity depends partially on helical structure and displays sequence dependence (C > A = T > G). Temperature, salt concentration and the ratio of enzyme to DNA greatly affect enzyme activity, requiring reaction conditions to be tailored to specific applications.
Applications:
- unidirectional nested deletions;
- site-directed mutagenesis;
- preparation of strand-specific probes;
- preparation of single-stranded substrates for dideoxy sequencing.
