Solution Summary

The expert uses bioinformatics and DNA sequence analysis to determine the restriction endonuclease site.

Solution Preview

Restriction enzymes are classified as endonucleases. Their biochemical activity is the hydrolysis ("digestion") of the phosphodiester backbone at specific sites in a DNA sequence. By "specific" we mean that an enzyme will only digest a DNA molecule after locating a particular sequence

Enzymes with recognition sequences from 4 to 8 nucleotides in length each have uses in genetic engineering.

(i.e. enzymes that have recognition sequences specified by six nucleotides) are good for day-to-day cloning work: You are using 6-cutters in the ...
