Substrate specificity and adenosine triphosphatase activity of the ATP-dependent deoxyribonuclease of Bacillus subtilis.


Studies on the specificity of the ATP-dependent DNase of Bacillus subtilis 168, carried out with pure enzyme at the optimal conditions for its action, have shown that the substrate is double-stranded linear DNA. Linear single-stranded DNA (separated strands of B. subtilis DNA and linear phage fd DNA) is not attacked, neither are there any circular forms… (More)
