Ada DNA repair, metal-binding (IPR004026)

Short name: Ada_DNA_repair_Zn-bd

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships



The Escherichia coli Ada protein repairs O6-methylguanine residues and methyl phosphotriesters in DNA by direct transfer of the methyl group to a cysteine residue. This domain contains four conserved cysteines that form a zinc binding site [PMID: 1581309, PMID: 8500619]. One of these cysteines is a methyl group acceptor. The methylated domain can then specifically bind to the ada box on a DNA duplex. The zinc binding site is located in the N-terminal region and consists of four beta strands [PMID: 8500619].
