RNase A, >5,000 U worthinton/mg, 10mg/mL

DNase & Protease-free (10 mg/mL)

RNase A (Ribonuclease A) is a bovine pancreatic endoribonuclease that cleaves single-stranded RNA. It catalyzes the cleavage of the phosphodiester bond between the 5’-ribose of a nucleotide and the phosphate group attached to the 3’-ribose of an adjacent pyrimidine nucleotide. This cleavage forms a 2’, 3’-cyclic phosphate, which is then hydrolysed to the corresponding 3’-nucleoside phosphate.

Detailed information:

Advantages & Features
  • Small single-chain polypeptide: 124 residues, ~13.7 kDa.
  • Avoids the use of co-factors and divalent cations.
  • High specific activity: more than 100 Kunitz units per mg protein.
  • High Quality: free of DNase, Proteinase or exonuclease contamination.
  • Time-saving protocol: avoids the RNAse heat step before use.

Unit definition:
One unit of the enzyme causes an increase in absorbance of 1.0 at 260 nm when yeast RNA is hydrolyzed at 37 °C and pH 5.0. 50 units are approximately equivalent to 1 Kunitz unit.

Note: One Kunitz unit equals to 50 Worthington units.
