Ribonuclease H (RNase H)
Ribonuclease H (RNase H) is an RNA-specific endonuclease that hydrolyzes single-stranded RNA via a magnesium or manganese cofactor. As such, RNase H is often used to remove the RNA template following reverse transcription or cDNA generation. Ribonuclease H (RNase H) is supplied in a buffer of 25 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.5), 30 mM NaCl, 0.5 mM EDTA, 1 mM DTT and 50% glycerol.
- Removal of RNA template following second-strand cDNA synthesis
- Removal of mRNA poly(A) sequence
- Reverse transcription
Recombinant E. coli
One unit is defined as the amount of enzyme required to produce 1 nmol of acid-soluble product in 20 minutes at 30°C and pH 7.7 using poly(rA)-poly(dT) as a substrate.
