FAQ: Can Mung Bean Nuclease be heat inactivated?

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO HEAT INACTIVATE ! Although Mung Bean Nuclease can be inactivated by heat, this is not recommended because the DNA begins to "breathe" before the Mung Bean Nuclease is inactivated and undesirable degradation occurs at breathing sections. Purify DNA by phenol/chloroform extraction and ethanol precipitation or spin column purification.
