Sammendrag

A deoxyribonuclease (DNase) was isolated from viscera of the cold-adapted marine bivalve Icelandic scallop. The 42 kDa DNase was shown
to be a single polypeptide which catalyses DNA hydrolysis in the absence of divalent cations. The isolated enzyme showed maximal activity at pH
6 and no activity above pH 7.2 against native DNA. The scallop DNase was slightly more susceptible to heat denaturation than porcine DNase II
and makes double-strand breaks in circular DNA substrate as the porcine enzyme. The N-terminal sequence of the scallop DNase was shown to be
closely similar to DNase II (EC 3.1.22.1) proteins from other organisms. The scallop DNase is in addition to plancitoxin I from A. planci, the only
DNase II enzyme isolated from marine invertebrates.
