Nuclease SbcCD subunit D (IPR004593)

Short name: SbcD

Family relationships



SbcCD cleaves DNA hairpin structures [PMID: 9653124]. This complex functions in the initiation of recombination and recombinational repair and is particularly important in regulating the stability of DNA sections that can form secondary structures [PMID: 9133662]. The complex acts as a 3'->5' double strand exonuclease that can open hairpins. It also has a 5' single-strand endonuclease activity [PMID: 9927737, PMID: 19897571].

This entry represent the SbcD subunit [PMID: 24531464].
