Used by restriction enzymes to locate specific sequences of DNA on which to
bind and subsequently cleave. Recognition sequence[hide]. The DNA sequence
Restriction enzymes are DNA-cutting enzymes found in bacteria (and harvested
from them for use). Because they cut within the molecule, they are often called ...
Restriction enzymes, also known as restriction endonucleases, are enzymes that
cut a DNA molecule at a particular place. They are essential tools for ...
Restriction enzymes are traditionally classified into four types on the basis of
subunit composition, cleavage position, sequence specificity and cofactor ...
The discovery of restriction enzymes nearly forty years ago revolutionized the
study of DNA and accelerated our ability to both sequence and synthesize ...
A restriction enzyme is a protein that recognizes a specific, short nucleotide
sequence and cuts the DNA only at that specific site, which is known as
The discovery of enzymes that could cut and paste DNA made genetic
engineering possible. Restriction enzymes, found naturally in bacteria, can be
used to cut ...
Restriction endonucleases are enzymes that cleave the sugar-phosphate
backbone of DNA. In most practical settings, a given enzyme cuts both strands of
Restriction endonucleases are enzymes which cleave double-stranded DNA in a
site- specific manner. This document lists available enzymes alphabetically by ...
