Nanoceria as a DNase I mimicking nanozyme

Author affiliations

Abstract

We herein communicate the DNase I like activity of nanoceria (CeO2 nanoparticles). Both CeO2 and DNase I cleave polyadenine (poly-A) DNA down to ∼5-mer fragments as the major products, although further cleavage to even shorter fragments was observed with CeO2. Mass spectrometry indicates a hydrolytic cleavage mechanism instead of oxidative cleavage.
