Figure 1: Protection of enzyme activity. The restriction enzyme DdeI was irradiated up to 12 kGy in enzyme-free cell extracts (UFs) of H. salinarum, R. radiotolerans, and R. xylanophilus (diluted to 0.2x). Residual restriction enzyme activity was assayed by the digestion of pUC19 plasmid DNA; fragments were analyzed by agarose gel electrophoresis. The first lanes are molecular size ladders.
