ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Thymine-DNA glycosylase.
Alternative Name(s)
Mismatch-specific thymine-DNA glycosylase.
Mismatch-specific thymine-DNA N-glycosylase.
Thymine DNA glycosylase.
Uracil/thymine DNA glycosylase.
Reaction catalysed
Hydrolyzes mismatched double-stranded DNA and polynucleotides, releasing free thymine
  • Thymine-DNA glycosylase is part of the DNA-repair machinery.
  • Thymine removal is fastest when it is from a G/T mismatch with a 5'-flanking C/G pair.
  • The glycosylase removes uracil from G/U, C/U, and T/U base pairs faster than it removes thymine from G/T.
