2]+dependent activity of human DNase I and its hyperactive variants.
3; P values: SS (DSTA) vs SS + DNase at day 0 and weeks 1, 2, and 10].
The contaminating DNA, in case of samples from transformed cells, needs to be removed by treating the sample with DNases which is free of RNase.
Moroy and his colleagues examined 69 mice missing the gene that encodes DNase I, as well as 78 others that had a partial enzyme deficiency and 37 that had a full complement of the enzyme.
3) identified in M1 SF370, M1T1 5005, M1T1 6050, and M3 strains, respectively, have different DNases in their lysogenic conversion modules.
DNase I treatment thinned the lung mucus of all of the patients participating in the new study, Crystal and his colleagues found.
Briefly, specific primers were used to amplify short amplicons (80-120 nucleotides) spanning the SNP of interest from 2 [micro]L of the 50-[micro]L DNase I-undigested nucleic acid aliquot.
In a study of 24 CF patients receiving DNase for six days, the enzyme significantly improved lung function while leaving DNA inside living cells unharmed, says NHLBI's Richard C.
This method also saves researchers the time and cost of doing the DNase treatment.
To rule out the possibility that the TaqMan MicroRNA Assay nonspecifically detects any contaminating genomic DNA in RNA preparations, we treated an RNA preparation with different combinations of DNase I and/or RNase A and assayed for miR-141, which was known to exist at a detectable concentration in this RNA preparation before any treatment.
001 [micro]g of RNase A (Qiagen, Hilden, Germany) and 1 [micro]L (2 U) of Turbo DNA-free DNase I (Ambion, Austin, TX, USA) with 1x Turbo DNA-free buffer were incubated at 37[degrees]C for 30 min under conditions that prevented destruction of viral RNA in the viral particles.
They discovered, to their surprise, that DNase destroyed the leukemic cells' ability to suppress an immune attack, Golub says.
