Cryonase Cold-Active Nuclease

Cryonase Cold-Active Nuclease is a recombinant endonuclease originally derived from a psychrophile, Shewanella sp., and purified from E. coli. This endonuclease enzyme can complete digestion of all types of DNA and RNA (single-stranded, double-stranded, linear or circularized) at cold temperatures and even in samples placed on ice. As a result, Cryonase Cold-Active Nuclease is frequently used during DNA digestion of mixed samples, such as those that include heat-labile proteins.

  • DNA digestion of all types of DNA
  • RNA digestion of all types of RNA
  • Enzymatic and other heat-labile reactions


Purified from E. coli


  • Protease activity is less than the detection limit.
  • E. coli genomic DNA contamination is less than the detection limit.
