DNA helicase II

Gene

uvrD

Organism
Escherichia coli (strain K12)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: Annotation score: 5 out of 5-Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

A helicase with DNA-dependent ATPase activity (PubMed:8419285). Unwinds DNA duplexes with 3' to 5' polarity with respect to the bound strand. Initiates unwinding more efficiently from a nicked substrate than ds duplex DNA (PubMed:8419285). Involved in the post-incision events of nucleotide excision repair and methyl-directed mismatch repair, and probably also in repair of alkylated DNA (Probable).1 Publication1 Publication

Catalytic activityi

ATP + H2O = ADP + phosphate.

    Pathology & Biotechi

    Disruption phenotypei

    Strongly sensitive to UV, ciprofloxacin (CFX), and azidothymidine (AZT) in single deletion mutants, radA-uvrD double deletions are more sensitive yet. Adding recF mutations almost completely suppresses AZT and partially suppresses UV and CFX sensitivity, suggesting RadA processes a class of intermediates that accumulate in uvrD mutants (PubMed:25484163).1 Publication

    Links to similar proteins from the UniProt Reference Clusters (UniRef) at 100%, 90% and 50% sequence identity:
    100%UniRef100 combines identical sequences and sub-fragments with 11 or more residues from any organism into one UniRef entry.
    90%UniRef90 is built by clustering UniRef100 sequences that have at least 90% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence (a.k.a seed sequence).
    50%UniRef50 is built by clustering UniRef90 seed sequences that have at least 50% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence in the cluster.
