Complete digestion of DNA into individual nucleotides


  • Quick and simple procedure for completely degrading DNA into its individual nucleotide component for quantitative analysis (e.g., whole-genome methylation analysis by HPLC, TLC, etc.).
  • 1 hour, single-enzyme digest vs. conventional 6 - 16-hour multi-step enzyme digestion protocols


DNA Degradase from Zymo Research is a nuclease mix that quickly and efficiently degrades DNA to its individual nucleotide components. DNA Degradase is ideal for whole-genome DNA methylation analysis by many downstream applications (i.e., HPLC, TLC, etc.). Digestion with the enzyme is performed via a one-step procedure that is faster and simpler than other available methods.
