ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Adenosine-5'-diphospho-5'-(DNA) diphosphatase.
Alternative Name(s)
5'-app5'-DNA adenylate hydrolase.
Reaction catalysed
  • Adenosine-5'-diphospho-5'-(DNA) + H(2)O <=> AMP + phospho-5'-(DNA)
  • Adenosine-5'-diphospho-5'-(ribonucleotide)-(DNA) + H(2)O <=> AMP + 5'-phospho-(ribonucleotide)-(DNA)
  • Aprataxin is a DNA-binding protein involved in different types of DNA break repair.
  • The enzyme acts (among other activities) on abortive DNA ligation intermediates that contain an adenylate covalently linked to the 5'-phosphate DNA terminus.
  • It also acts when the adenylate is covalently linked to the 5'-phosphate of a ribonucleotide linked to a DNA strand, which is the result of abortive ligase activty on products of EC, an enzyme that cleaves RNA-DNA hybrids on the 5' side of the ribonucleotide found in the 5'-RNA-DNA-3' junction.
  • Aprataxin binds the adenylate group to a histidine residue within the active site, followed by its hydrolysis from the nucleic acid and eventual release, leaving a 5'-phosphate terminus that can be efficiently rejoined.
  • The enzyme also possesses the activities of EC and EC
