    The protein

    Catalyzed reaction/ biological activity

  • template-dependent DNA polymerase, fills single nucleotide gaps [Pubmed|18938175]
  • has intrinsic 3'-5' exonuclease activity for resecting unannealed 3'-termini in gapped DNA substrates [Pubmed|18776221]
  • has intrinsic apurinic/apyrimidinic (AP) endonuclease activity [Pubmed|20974932]
  • 2'-deoxyribonucleoside 5'-triphosphate + DNA(n) --> diphosphate + DNA(n+1) (according to UniProt)
  • Protein family

  • N-terminal part: DNA polymerase type-X family (single member, according to UniProt)
  • C-terminal part: PHP family (single member, according to UniProt)
  • [SW|Domains]

  • C-terminal PHP domain with an active site formed by nine histidines and aspartates that catalyzes 3'-5' exonuclease, AP-endonuclease, 3'-phosphodiesterase and 3'-phosphatase activities [pubmed|31289311]
  • Structure
