Ribonuclease T1 (RNase T1) from Aspergillus oryzae is used to digest denatured RNA prior to sequencing and is used for protein folding studies .

Biochem/physiol Actions

Ribonuclease T1 (RNase T1) from Aspergillus oryzae is an endoribonuclease that hydrolyzes after G residues. Cleavage occurs between the 3’-phosphate group of a guanidine ribonucleotide and 5’-hydroxyl of the adjacent nucleotide. The initial product is a 2’:3’ cyclic phosphate nucleoside that is hydrolyzed to the corresponding 3’-nucleoside phosphate. It differs from Pancreatic RNase in that it attacks the guanine sites specifically to yield 3′-GMP and oligonucleotides with a 3′-GMP terminal group.

Ammonium Sulfate Suspensions - Technical Note

Note that for an ammonium sulfate suspension, most of the enzyme will be in solid form. It is likely that only negligible amounts of enzyme will be in the ammonium sulfate solution.
