Functioni

Function as a apurinic/apyrimidinic (AP) endodeoxyribonuclease in the DNA base excision repair (BER) pathway of DNA lesions induced by oxidative and alkylating agents. Initiates repair of AP sites in DNA by catalyzing hydrolytic incision of the phosphodiester backbone immediately adjacent to the damage, generating a single-strand break with 5'-deoxyribose phosphate and 3'-hydroxyl ends. May also play a role in the epigenetic regulation of gene expression by participating in DNA demethylation. Required for passage through the midblastula transition MBT. May also act as an endoribonuclease involved in the control of single-stranded RNA metabolism. Has no redox activity. Binds DNA and RNA.2 Publications

Catalytic activityi

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.PROSITE-ProRule annotation

Cofactori

Mg2+By similarity, Mn2+By similarityNote: Probably binds two magnesium or manganese ions per subunit.By similarity
