ENZYME entry: EC 3.2.2.29

Accepted Name
thymine-DNA glycosylase
Alternative Name(s)
mismatch-specific thymine-DNA glycosylase
mismatch-specific thymine-DNA N-glycosylase
TDG
thymine DNA glycosylase
uracil/thymine DNA glycosylase
Reaction catalysed
Hydrolyzes mismatched double-stranded DNA and polynucleotides, releasing free thymine
Comment(s)
  • 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.
