Nucleases used to detect nucleic acids

Scientists in the US have used restriction endonucleases to detect nucleic acids that do not contain restriction endonuclease recognition sites. Herman Sintim and colleagues at the University of Maryland, College Park, show that the topology of DNA probes used in this detection strategy remarkably affects the efficiency of RNA/DNA detection.
