Worthington Tissue Dissociation Guide
Dissociating Enzymes: Deoxyribonuclease I
Often as a result of cell damage, deoxyribonucleic acid leaks into the dissociation medium increasing viscosity and causing handling problems. Purified deoxyribonuclease is sometimes included in cell isolation procedures to digest the nucleic acids without damaging the intact cells.
