ENZYME entry: EC 3.6.1.72

Accepted Name
DNA-3'-diphospho-5'-guanosine diphosphatase.
Alternative Name(s)
Aprataxin.
DNA-3'pp5'G guanylate hydrolase.
Reaction catalysed
(DNA)-3'-diphospho-5'-guanosine + H(2)O <=> (DNA)-3'-phosphate + GMP
Comment(s)
  • Aprataxin is a DNA-binding protein that catalyzes (among other activities) the 3' decapping of DNA-ppG (formed by EC 6.5.1.8).
  • The enzyme binds the guanylate group to a histidine residue at its active site, forming a covalent enzyme-nucleotide phosphate intermediate, followed by the hydrolysis of the guanylate from the nucleic acid and its eventual release.
  • The enzyme also possesses the activity of EC 3.6.1.71 and EC 3.6.1.72.
  • Formerly EC 3.1.12.2.
