Polymers A, B
Name DNA-formamidopyrimidine glycosylase
Comment May play a significant role in processes leading to recovery from mutagenesis and/or cell death by alkylating agents. Also involved in the GO system responsible for removing an oxidatively damaged form of guanine (7,8-dihydro-8-oxoguanine) from DNA.

Polymers B, A
Name DNA-(apurinic or apyrimidinic site) lyase
Comment 'Nicking' of the phosphodiester bond is due to a lyase-type reaction, not hydrolysis. This group of enzymes was previously listed as endonucleases, under the number EC
