USER (Uracil-Specific Excision Reagent) Enzyme (1) generates a single nucleotide gap at the location of a uracil residue.
Applications of USER include:
- Directional RNA Seq
- NEBNext adaptor cleavage
- USER cloning
USER (Uracil-Specific Excision Reagent) Enzyme (1) generates a single nucleotide gap at the location of a uracil. USER Enzyme is a mixture of Uracil DNA glycosylase (UDG) and the DNA glycosylase-lyase Endonuclease VIII. UDG catalyses the excision of a uracil base, forming an abasic (apyrimidinic) site while leaving the phosphodiester backbone intact (2,3). The lyase activity of Endonuclease VIII breaks the phosphodiester backbone at the 3´ and 5´ sides of the abasic site so that base-free deoxyribose is released (4,5).
