Many more than that,  there are 248 references to exonuclease in
genbank, hee are some examples..


 1) [SCU86134] Saccharomyces cerevisiae exonuclease 1 (EXO1) gene,
complete cds. 

 2) [HEHSV1EX] HSV-1 (strain 17) gene for exonuclease (0.16 to 0.20
genome
m.u.).  


3) [ECOXSEA] E.coli xseA gene coding for the large subunit of
exonuclease

VII.  5) [HS1EXO] HSV1 (KOS) alkaline exonuclease gene, 0.175-0.160 map
units. 

etc, though I doubt that thee are more than 100 different exonucleases
known as many of these references are for the same enzyme eg different
subunits.
