Description

This entry represents a family of ATP-dependent DNA ligases. It occurs as part of a four-gene system with an exonuclease, a helicase and a phosphoesterase, with all four genes clustered or at least the first two and last two paired. This family resembles DNA ligase I, and its presumed function may be in DNA repair, replication, or recombination.
