Description

Bovine pancreatic RNase A is a member of the RNase A protein superfamily. It is one of the most characterized proteins, and is a kidney shaped basic protein. This protein is composed of 124 amino acids. In its native form, RNase A exists as a homodimer.

RNase A catalyzes the trans phosphorylation and degradation of RNA. It was the first protein identified to exhibit DNA melting functionality. This enzyme binds to several binding sites on single stranded (ss) RNA polynucleotide chain before degrading it. It interacts with ssDNA in a similar manner, which is responsible for its ‘DNA unwinding′ property.
