Abstract

A new type II restriction endonuclease, StrI has been identified from Streptomyces thermodiastaticus. The enzyme has been purified using three column chromatography steps. The enzyme recognizes hexanucleotide sequence and cleaves DNA 5-C down arrow TCGAG-3 as indicated. The optimum temperature, pH, and cation requirements for the enzyme activity were determined.
