S1 Nuclease is a single-strand-specific endonuclease that hydrolyzes single-stranded RNA or DNA into 5´ mononucleotides. The enzyme will hydrolyze single-stranded regions in duplex DNA such as loops and gaps. S1 Nuclease is stable at 65°C. Applications: Nuclease mapping techniques (1,2). Removal of single-stranded regions from double-stranded DNA (3). Exo III-ordered sequencing (4). Source: Isolated from Aspergillus oryzae. Performance and Quality Testing: Double-strand-specific deoxyribonuclease and phosphatase assays. Unit Definition: One unit hydrolyzes 1 µg of denatured DNA to acid-soluble material in 1 min. at 37°C. Unit Reaction Conditions: 30 mM sodium acetate (pH 4.6), 50 mM NaCl, 1 mM zinc acetate, 0.5 mg/ml heat-denatured DNA, 5% (v/v) glycerol, and enzyme in 0.5 ml for 10 min. at 37°C.
