The conserved enzyme RNase H1 is the catalytic agent in gene silencing by oligodeoxynucleotide antisense drugs. An optimized in ;vitro assay involving purified recombinant human RNase H1 can recapitulate the in vivo pathway of antisense oligonucleotide-directed RNA cleavage, and is used to show that the highly conserved histidine 264 is important for both the hydrolytic and product release steps
