Ribonuclease R (RNase R) from E. coli, is a magnesium-dependent 3′→5′ exoribonuclease that can digest all linear RNAs but does not digest lariat or circular RNA structures. Most cellular RNAs will be digested completely by RNase R, with the exception of tRNAs, 5S RNA and intron lariats. RNase R is used for enrichment of circRNAs in biological samples, identification of intronic lariat sequences, identification of exonic circRNAs, studying alternative splicing.


Guaranteed efficacy and quality with ISO 13485 certification.

Available in bulk or tailored configurations.

Effectively breaks down linear RNA, while preserving lariat loops and circular RNAs.

Selective digestion of linear RNAs enhances the isolation of circular RNAs for protein production or intronic cDNA library construction.

RNase R serves as a fundamental component in circular RNA synthesis (circRNA). CircRNA holds promise for enhancing pharmaceutical stability and biostability. With their covalently closed structures, circRNAs withstand RNA exonucleases. [1,2] RNase R finds widespread application in various studies, including alternative splicing, intron cDNA production, and the isolation of splicing intermediates and lariats.

  1. The activity of RNase R requires 0.1-1.0 mM Mg2+;
  2. With the increase of RNA, the reaction time can be extended and the enzyme amount can be increased appropriately;
  3. The EDTA content in RNA samples may affect the activity of RNase R.
  4. Incubate at 70 ℃ for 10 minutes can inactivate the enzyme.
