Lambda Exonuclease is a highly processive exonuclease which selectively degrades the 5′-phosphorylated strand of double-stranded DNA via the stepwise 5′ to 3′ release of mononucleotides from duplex DNA. Lambda Exonuclease is inactive against 5′-hydroxyl termini(1), and does not initiate excision at a nick or gap(2), though it degrades a 5′-overhanging tail from duplex DNA at a greatly reduced rate.

Specific Activity: 100,000 U/mg

Catalyzes the removal of 5′-mononucleotides from duplex DNA.

Purified from a strain of E. coli that overexpresses the exonuclease gene from bacteriophage Lambda.
