Abstract

After screening a variety of bacteria from soil for the DNA cleavage activity, a type II restriction endonuclease, Basl was isolated and characterized from a Bacillus species. Using the purified enzyme the recognition sequence was determined. The enzyme recognizes 5'- CCANNNN NTGG-3' sequence and cleaves as indicated. The enzyme functions efficiently at low ionic strength, narrow pH range and at the optimum temperature of 30°C.
