Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry was used to study, among many of its important activities, the exonuclease activity of exonuclease III (EC, a metal-dependent enzyme. The technique is capable of analyzing the mixture of DNA substrates in the reaction. Time dependent measurement of the reaction mixture provided kinetics data of the enzyme. It was found that among divalent metals studied, Mn, which increased the rate of reactions by two orders of magnitude, is the best cofactor for exonuclease III.
