Compare endonuclease and exonuclease? ..

Answer / wedyan

Exonucleases are enzymes that work by cleaving nucleotides one at a time from the end (exo) of a polynucleotide chain. A hydrolyzing reaction that breaks phosphodiester bonds at either the 3’ or the 5’ end occurs.

Its close relative is the endonuclease, which cleaves phosphodiester bonds in the middle (endo) of a polynucleotide chain.

Answer / forbiteh

first exonuclease is a type of DNA polymerase mostly it
helps in proofing reading by cutting phosphodiester bonds
at the end of the strand in the case of a mismatched pair.

endonuleases are mosty produced by bacteria mostly for
defense mechansism againsit foreign dna e.g that of a virus
and they cut phosphodiester bonds within the dna strand at
point called restriction sites.
