faecalis suspensions were mixed with equal volumes of DNase I (Sigma Aldrich, Br[??]ndby, Denmark; final concentration of 50 Kunitz/mL, 5 mM [MgCl.sub.2] in 0.9% NaCl) or heat-inactivated DNase I (100[degrees]C, 30 min), injected in 96-well plates (Ibidi [mu]-plate uncoated, Planegg/Martinsried, Germany) in triplicates, and incubated for 1 h at 35[degrees]C in jars containing anaerobic gas generating sachets (Anaerogen; Thermo Fisher Scientific, Copenhagen, Denmark).
Thus, some authors believe that the endonuclease G released from mitochondria initiates DNA fragmentation and thereafter, this process of fragmentation is increased by DNase I released from necrotic cells.
The degradation of nuclear DNA, a stamp of programmed cell death (PCD), is a development that happened both in animals and in plants(4).The two main types of DNase originate in humans are known as Alkaline DNase (DNase I) and Acid DNase (DNase II) [5].
CdtB exhibits DNase I activity, disrupting the phosphodiester bonds in chromosomal DNA.
DNase I) and acidic cation independent nucleases (e.g.
Most commonly used for the testing of laboratory equipment, DNase I non-specifically degrades double-stranded DNA.
A number of studies indicate the MLL bcr is susceptible to DNA cleaving agents, such as topoisomerase II (topo II) and DNase I, but there have been no reports of direct binding of such proteins in this region.
To eliminate contaminating cellular RNA and DNA from the samples, 0.001 [micro]g of RNase A (Qiagen, Hilden, Germany) and 1 [micro]L (2 U) of Turbo DNA-free DNase I (Ambion, Austin, TX, USA) with 1x Turbo DNA-free buffer were incubated at 37[degrees]C for 30 min under conditions that prevented destruction of viral RNA in the viral particles.
RNA samples were treated with DNase I at 37[degrees]C for 30 min to remove genomic DNA.
For another 10 samples, [beta]-globin DNA was not detected in any samples after we used on-column DNase digestion with 80 [micro]L of enzymebuffer mixture from the RNase-Free DNase Set (Qiagen) for the columnbased protocol and postextraction DNase treatment with a DNase I reagent set (Invitrogen) for the automated protocol.
To the surface of their film, the Kagoshima researchers added their version of a self-destruct button: a negatively charged layer of the DNA-snipping enzyme DNase I. In the March 10 Angewandte Chemic International Edition, the researchers report that this enzyme remains inert while stuck to the surface of the positively charged polymer.
