DNA polymerase V (IPR007015)

Short name: DNA_pol_V

Family relationships



Proteins of this family are predominantly nucleolar. The majority are described as transcription factor transactivators. The family also includes the fifth essential DNA polymerase (Pol5p) of Schizosaccharomyces pombe (Fission yeast) and Saccharomyces cerevisiae (Baker's yeast) (EC: Pol5p is localized exclusively to the nucleolus and binds near or at the enhancer region of rRNA-encoding DNA repeating units.
