DNase I stability

... So that after, say, 2 years it would be around 60 to 65 % or so? Though it seems that in low concentrations (or at low protein levels?) the enzyme is less stable. It also appears to be quite easily inactivated under mechanical stress, because it can happen even when vigorously pipetting ...
