Exonucleases catalyze the removal of nucleotides in either the 5´ to 3´ or the 3´ to 5´ direction from single- or double-stranded DNA. These enzymes can be used in a wide variety of applications, including next-generation sequencing (NGS), PCR and gene synthesis.
Non-specific endonucleases cleave DNA and are generally used for DNA contamination removal. (To learn about DNA Repair Enzymes and Structure-specific endonucleases, visit here.)
