ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Type III site-specific deoxyribonuclease.
Alternative Name(s)
Type III restriction enzyme.
Reaction catalysed
Endonucleolytic cleavage of DNA to give specific double-stranded fragments with terminal 5'-phosphates
  • Has an absolute requirement for ATP, but does not hydrolyze it; S-adenosyl-L-methionine stimulates the reaction, but is not absolutely required.
  • Recognize specific short DNA sequences and cleave a short distance away from the recognition sequence.
  • Exist as complexes with enzymes of similar specificity listed under EC or EC
  • Formerly EC and EC
