Noun1.restriction endonuclease - any of the enzymes that cut nucleic acid at specific restriction sites and produce restriction fragments; obtained from bacteria (where they cripple viral invaders); used in recombinant DNA technology
endonuclease - a nuclease that cleaves nucleic acids at interior bonds and so produces fragments of various sizes
