2 Types of restriction modification systems Classification based on: Enzyme complexity Cofactor requirements Position of DNA cleavage

3 Type I Recognizes a DNA sequence but cleaves in an apparent random fashion away from the recognition site Requires ATP, S-adenosylmethionine (SAM) and magnesium ions (Mg 2+ ) for activity Composed of three subunits: Specificity subunit for DNA recognition site Modification subunit Restriction subunit In the presence of SAM the enzyme binds the recognition site If methylated - then ATP hydrolysis stimulates the dissociation of the enzyme from DNA If hemimethylated - ATP methylates of the other strand If unmethylated - then DNA cleavage occurs

4 Type II They recognize symmetrical DNA sequences where the 5’ to 3’ direction on one DNA strand is the same as the sequence in the 5’ to 3’ direction ( palindrome) Require Mg 2+ for activity cleave DNA within the recognition site Different restriction enzymes isolated from different sources often recognize the same DNA sequence, although they may cleave the DNA differently ( isoschizomer) Sma I and Xma I both recognize the same DNA sequence 5’-CCCGGG-3’ 3’-GGGCCC-5’ Sma I cleaves in the middle of the site between the central C and G nucleotides while Xma I cleaves after the first C nucleotide

5 Type II restriction enzyme activity Little sequence homology at the amino acid level Conversed catalytic core composed of a five-stranded β - sheet flanked by two α -helices Function by ‘scanning’ the length of a DNA molecule by binding to it in a non-specific fashion Recognition of a specific sequence causes the restriction enzyme to undergoes a large conformational change activating the catalytic sites cutting the two sugar–phosphate backbones of the DNA double helix to generate a 3’ hydroxyl and a 5’ phosphate Bam HI

6 Type III The type III restriction systems act as complexes of two different subunits: subunit (M) is responsible for DNA sequence recognition and modification subunit (R) is responsible for nuclease action DNA cleavage requires Mg 2+ and SAM The recognition sites are approximately symmetric, and cleavage occurs by nicking one DNA strand at a measured
