restriction enzymes
Endonucleases which recognize specific base sequences within a @D01597@ @H02769@, creating a double-strand break of @D01597@. Type I restriction @E02159@ bind to these @R05199@ but subsequently cut the @D01597@ at different sites. Type II restriction @E02159@ both bind and cut within their recognition or target sites.
