A nomenclature for restriction enzymes, DNA methyltransferases, homing endonucleases and their genes. Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • A nomenclature is described for restriction endonucleases, DNA methyltransferases, homing endonucleases and related genes and gene products. It provides explicit categories for the many different Type II enzymes now identified and provides a system for naming the putative genes found by sequence analysis of microbial genomes.
