Exonuclease III catalyzes the stepwise removal of mononucleotides from dsDNA starting from a 3´-OH at nicks, blunt ends, recessed ends and 3´-overhangs of less than 4 bases, yielding nucleoside 5´-phosphates. This 3´→5´ exonuclease will also degrade DNA from 3´-phosphate ends due to its intrinsic 3´-phosphatase activity. In addition, the enzyme has apurinic endonuclease activity and ribonuclease H activity. The enzyme is used in conjunction with S1 nuclease for unidirectional deletion of sequences from the termini of DNA fragments. Exonuclease III is provided with a 10X Reaction Buffer consisting of 660mM Tris-HCl (pH 8.0 at 25°C), 6.6mM MgCl2.
