DNA polymerase subunit gamma-2, mitochondrial (IPR027030)

Short name: POLG2

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


DNA polymerase gamma is a heterotrimer composed of a catalytic subunit and a homodimer of accessory subunits [PMID: 11172710]. The gamma 2 (or gammma B) subunit is the accessory subunit. It enhances DNA binding, stimulates the polymerase and exonuclease activities, and increases the processivity of the enzyme [PMID: 10608893, PMID: 10666468, PMID: 10677218].
