Homologous Superfamily

Restriction endonuclease, type II, BamHI/BglIII/BstY (IPR011338)

Short name: BamHI/BglII/BstY

Overlapping entries


Restriction endonucleases BamHI, BglII and BstYI share a strong structural consensus mapping to the alpha/beta core domain, represented by this superfamily. BamHI recognises the DNA sequence GGATCC and cleaves after G-1 [PMID: 10882125], BglII recognises AGATCT and cleaves after A-1 [PMID: 11175900], and BstYI recognises RGATCY and cleaves after the purine R [PMID: 15099740].
