Mung Bean Nuclease degrades
single-stranded nucleic acids to yield 5'-phosphoryl mono- or
oligonucleotides. Double-stranded DNA, RNA and DNA:RNA hybrids are
relatively resistant to the enzyme. If very large amount of enzyme are
used it also degrades double-stranded DNA from both ends. Unlike S1
nuclease, this enzyme will not cleave the DNA strand opposite a nick in a
Mung bean sprouts.
¡Ü Removal of 3' and 5'
extensions from DNA or RNA termini.
¡Ü Transcript mapping.
Opening up hairpin loops formed during synthesis of double-stranded cDNA.
¡Ü Excision of gene coding sequences from genomic DNA.
