Domain

DNA-directed DNA polymerase, family A, palm domain (IPR001098)

Short name: DNA-dir_DNA_pol_A_palm_dom

Domain relationships

None.

Description

Synonym(s): DNA nucleotidyltransferase (DNA-directed)

DNA-directed DNA polymerases(EC:2.7.7.7) are the key enzymes catalysing the accurate replication of DNA. They require either a small RNA molecule or a protein as a primer for the de novo synthesis of a DNA chain. A number of polymerases belong to this family [PMID: 2196557, PMID: 1870963, PMID: 8451181].
