Deoxyribonuclease I Application Notes DNase I is used as a genetic marker for forensic identification. Used for the removal of DNA from protein samples. DNAse I is used to nick DNA, as a first step to incorporate labeled bases into DNA. The enzyme from Sigma has been used in the nuclease stock along with RNAse during cell lysate preparation of Madin-Darby canine kidney (MDCK) II cell lines. It has also been used during RNA extraction from Sindbis virus. Deoxyribonuclease I from bovine pancreas has been used for the identification, localization and expression of two novel human genes similar to deoxyribonuclease I. Deoxyribonuclease I from bovine pancreas has also been used in a study to investigate a new approach to obtaining high-activity RNase, DNase, cholesterolesterase, and trypsin from cattle pancreas.

Biochemical Physiological Actions : DNase I is an endonuclease that acts on phosphodiester bonds adjacent to pyrimidines to produce polynucleotides with terminal 5'-phosphates. In the presence of Mg2+, DNAse I cleaves each strand of DNA independently and the cleavage sites are random. Both DNA strands are cleaved at approximately the same site in the presence of Mn2+. The pH optimum is found to be between 7 and 8. Divalent cations such as Mn2+, Ca2+, Co2+, and Zn2+ are activators of the enzyme. A concentration of 5 mM Ca2+ stabilizes the enzyme against proteolytic digestion. DNAse I from bovine pancreas consists of four chromatographically distinguishable components, A, B, C, and D, with their molar ratios being 4:1:1 respectively. Only minor amounts of D are found. 2-Mercaptoethanol, chelators, sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) and actin are known to inhibit the enzyme activity.
