RNase A is an endoribonuclease that attacks at the 3'-phosphate of a pyrimidine nucleotide. The sequence of pG-pG-pC-pA-pG will be cleaved to give pG-pG-pCp and A-pG. The highest activity is exhibited with ssRNA.
RNase A is free of detectable DNase and protease activity, a heat treatment of the enzyme is not necessary before use.

Reaction conditions:
Working concentration: 1 - 100 μg/ml (depending on application)
The enzyme is active under a wide range of reaction conditions. At low salt concentrations (0 to 100 mM NaCl), RNase cleaves ss and dsRNA as well as the RNA strand in RNA-DNA hybrids. At NaCl concentrations of 0.3 M or higher, RNase A specifically cleaves ssRNA.

RNase A is an extremely stable enzyme, remarkable resistant to heating. It renatures easily after treatment with most denaturing agents.

Ribonuclease inhibitor, Vanadyl-ribonucleoside complexes, arabinonucleosides, Zn2+, Cu2+, penicillin, Vitamin B12, SDS, DEPC, 4 M guanidinium thiocyanate plus 0.1 M 2-mercaptoethanol. Most polyanions show some inhibitory effect. Inactivated by phenol/chloroform extraction.

Isoelectric point (pI): 9.6

Optimal pH: 7.0 (activity range 6 - 10)
