Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0004518 - nuclease activity

Definition: Catalysis of the hydrolysis of ester linkages within nucleic acids.

Note that 'tRNA nucleotidyltransferase activity ; GO:0009022', also known as 'ribonuclease PH', does not have parentage in the 'nuclease activity' branch of the ontology because both GO and the Enzyme Commission define nuclease activity as a type of hydrolysis.

Parent Classes:
GO:0016788 - hydrolase activity, acting on ester bonds

Child Classes:
GO:0004519 - endonuclease activity (62) ,
GO:0004527 - exonuclease activity (32) ,
GO:0004536 - deoxyribonuclease activity (37) ,
GO:0004540 - ribonuclease activity (33) ,
GO:0008946 - oligonucleotidase activity (1)
