Deoxyribonuclease II, or Acid DNase, hydrolyzes deoxyribonucleotide linkages in native and denatured DNA yielding products with 3'-phosphates. As the name implies, it is more effective at acid pH.

There are several known DNases II, including:

  • DNase II alpha (usually just called DNase II)
  • DNase II beta (also called DLAD, or DNase II-Like Acid DNase)
