Accepted name: exodeoxyribonuclease V
Reaction: Exonucleolytic cleavage (in the presence of ATP) in either 5′- to 3′- or 3′- to 5′-direction to yield 5′-phosphooligonucleotides
Other name(s): Escherichia coli exonuclease V; E. coli exonuclease V; gene recBC endoenzyme; RecBC deoxyribonuclease; gene recBC DNase; exonuclease V; gene recBCD enzymes
Comments: Preference for double-stranded DNA. Possesses DNA-dependent ATPase activity. Acts endonucleolytically on single-stranded circular DNA.
