T4 RNA Ligase 2 (dsRNA Ligase)
T4 RNA Ligase 2 (dsRNA Ligase)

T4 RNA Ligase 2, also known as T4 Rnl2 (gp24.1), has both intermolecular and intramolecular RNA strand joining activity. Unlike T4 RNA Ligase 1, T4 RNA Ligase 2 is much more active joining nicks on double stranded RNA than on joining the ends of single stranded RNA. The enzyme requires an adjacent 5´ phosphate and 3´ OH for ligation.

Description:
T4 RNA Ligase 2, also known as T4 Rnl2 (gp24.1), catalyzes both inter- and intramolecular formation of phosphodiester bonds between 5'-phosphate and 3'-hydroxyl termini of oligonucleotides, single-stranded RNA and DNA. Unlike T4 RNA Ligase 1, T4 RNA Ligase 2 is much more active on joining nicks on double stranded RNA than on joining the ends of single-stranded RNA. The enzyme requires an adjacent 5'-phosphate and 3'-OH for ligation. The enzyme can also ligate the 3'-OH of RNA to the 5'-phosphate of DNA in a double stranded structure.

Source:
An E. coli strain that carries the T4 RNA Ligase 2 gene (I. Schildkraut)

Applications:

  • Ligates a nick in dsRNA
  • Ligates the 3'-OH of RNA to the 5'-phosphate of DNA in a double stranded structure
