Cat No. N9046
Size: 100mg

Contents: Hy-RNase A: 100mg
Specific Activity: >2500 u/mg protein (>50 Kunitz units/mg protein)
Form: Contains 100 mg Hy-RNase A, Lyophilized Powder

Hy-RNase A, DNase and protease-free is an endoribonuclease that specifically degrades single-stranded RNA at C and U residues. It cleaves the phosphodiester bond between the 5'-ribose of a nucleotide and the phosphate group attached to the 3'-ribose of an adjacent pyrimidine nucleotide, resulting 2', 3'-cyclic phosphate hydrolyzed to the corresponding 3'-nucleoside phosphate.

Hy-RNase A is free of DNase activity. It is not necessary to heat it before use.

-Plasmid and genomic DNA preparation
-Removal of RNA from recombinant protein preparations.
-Ribonuclease protection assays
-Mapping single-base mutations in DNA or RNA

Definition of Activity Unit

One unit of the enzyme causes an increase in absorbance of 1.0 at 260 nm when yeast Hy-RNA is hydrolyzed at 37C and pH 5.0.
Fifty units are approximately equivalent to 1 Kunitz unit

Stable at room temperature for one year. For long time storage, store the Hy-RNase A powder at 4C.

Bovine pancreas.

Molecular Weight
13.7 kDa monomer.

Quality Control
The absence of endodeoxyribonucleases, exodeoxyribonucleases and proteases confirmed by appropriate quality tests, functionally tested for RNA digestion in a plasmid DNA purification procedure.
