PureBiotech LLC's RNase Inhibitor is a recombinant 50 kD protein purified from an overexpressing strain of E. coli. This enzyme inhibits RNase by tightly binding (Ka~1014M) RNase A-type enzymes in a 1:1 molar ratio. Our RNase Inhibitor does not inhibit nucleic acid modifying enzymes commonly used in molecular biology applications, such as; AMV reverse transcriptase, MMLV reverse transcriptase, Taq DNA polymerase, phage RNA polymerases, RNase H, RNase T1, or S1 nuclease. Use of RNase Inhibitor increases yields in cDNA synthesis reactions, in vitro transcription, in vitro translation, and other reactions that utilize RNA substrates or produce RNA.
