Domain

DDH domain (IPR001667)

Short name: DDH_dom

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This is a domain of predicted phosphoesterases, including Drosophila prune protein and bacterial RecJ exonuclease [PMID: 9478130]. The RecJ protein of Escherichia coli plays an important role in a number of DNA repair and recombination pathways. RecJ catalyzes processive degradation of single-stranded DNA in a 5'-to-3' direction. Sequences highly related to those encoding RecJ can be found in many of the eubacterial genomes sequenced to date [PMID: 10633092].
