DNA-(apurinic or apyrimidinic site) lyase
- The C-O-P bond 3' to the apurinic or apyrimidinic site in DNA is broken by a beta-elimination reaction, leaving a 3'-terminal unsaturated sugar and a product with a terminal 5'-phosphate
This enzyme belongs to the family of lyases, specifically the "catch-all" class of lyases that cleave carbon-oxygen bonds. The systematic name of this enzyme class is DNA-(apurinic or apyrimidinic site) 5'-phosphomonoester-lyase. Other names in common use include AP lyase, AP endonuclease class I, endodeoxyribonuclease (apurinic or apyrimidinic), deoxyribonuclease (apurinic or apyrimidinic), E. coli endonuclease III, phage-T4 UV endonuclease, Micrococcus luteus UV endonuclease, AP site-DNA 5'-phosphomonoester-lyase, and X-ray endonuclease III.
As of late 2007, 23 structures have been solved for this class of enzymes, with PDB accession codes 1BIX, 1CQG, 1CQH, 1DE8, 1DE9, 1DEW, 1E9N, 1HD7, 1N39, 1N3A, 1N3C, 1VYB, 2ABK, 2I5W, 2ISI, 2J63, 2NOB, 2NOE, 2NOF, 2NOH, 2NOI, 2NOL, and 2NOZ.
