Enzyme that cuts an RNA molecule by hydrolyzing one or more of its phosphodiester bonds.
Any nuclease that cleaves phosphodiester bonds in RNA. All ribonucleases are proteins, with the exception of Ribonuclease P, which is a ribonucleoprotein with ribozyme activity.
(Abbreviation: RNAse) Any enzyme that catalyses the hydrolysis of RNA.
a transferase that catalyzes the hydrolysis of ribonucleic acid
a family of resilient enzymes that rapidly degrade RNA molecules. Control of RNase activity is a key consideration in all manipulations involving RNA.
Any enzyme that hydrolyses RNA.
An enzyme that catalyzes (breaks down) RNA.
An enzyme that cuts RNA molecules into smaller pieces.
Ribonuclease, abbreviated commonly as RNase, is a nuclease that catalyzes the hydrolysis of RNA into smaller components. They can be divided into endonucleases and exonucleases, and comprise several sub-classes within the EC 3.1 class of enzymes.
