Minor note about endonuclease nomenclature: Endonucleases like I-SceI are not really "restriction endonucleases" because they do not originate from the bacterial restriction system. They are "homing endonucleases" from yeast ("S"accharomyces "ce"revisiae) that help introns move around in yeast genomes. There's lots of other members of this family that have large sites like I-SceI and they are useful, but they aren't "restriction" endonucleases. *Joe Hanson 15:18, 6 February 2012 (EST):
