EC 184.108.40.206: Deoxyribonuclease IV
Endonucleolytic cleavage to 5'-phosphooligonucleotide end-products.
- The enzyme is an apurinic/apyrimidinic (AP) site endonuclease that primes DNA repair synthesis at AP sites.
- It specifically cleaves the DNA backbone at AP sites and also removes 3' DNA-blocking groups such as 3' phosphates, 3' phosphoglycolates, and 3' alpha,beta-unsaturated aldehydes that arise from oxidative base damage and the activity of combined glycosylase/lyase enzymes.
- It is also the only known repair enzyme that is able to cleave the DNA backbone 5' of the oxidative lesion alpha-deoxyadenosine.
- The enzyme has a strong preference for single-stranded DNA.
- Formerly EC 220.127.116.11.
