Restriction Enzymes Restriction enzymes are enzymes isolated from bacteria that recognize specific sequences in DNA and then cut the DNA to produce fragments called restriction fragments. Different Restriction enzymes recognize and cut different sequences of DNA. This restriction enzyme recognizes the DNA sequence GAATTC. It cuts the DNA strands between the bases A and G. The resulting single-stranded sticky ends have the base sequence AATT. This restriction enzyme recognizes the DNA sequence CTGCAG. It cuts the DNA strands between the bases A and G. The resulting single-stranded sticky ends have the base sequence ACGT. This restriction enzyme recognizes the DNA sequence CCCGGG. It cuts the DNA strands between the bases C and G. The resulting DNA fragments have no single-stranded sticky ends.
