Endodeoxyribonuclease IV (phage T(4)-induced).
Endodeoxyribonuclease IV (phage T4-induced).
Endonuclease II.
Endonuclease IV.
Reaction catalysed
Endonucleolytic cleavage to 5'-phosphooligonucleotide end-products
Comment(s)
  • 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 3.1.4.30.
