Functioni

Dioxygenase that acts as a DNA demethylase. Requires molecular oxygen, alpha-ketoglutarate and iron. Specifically demethylates DNA methylated on the 6th position of adenine (N(6)-methyladenosine) DNA (PubMed:27027282). N(6)-methyladenosine (m6A) DNA is present at young (less than 1.5 million years old) but not old (more than 6 million years old) L1 elements in embryonic stem cells and probably promotes silencing of such L1 elements (PubMed:27027282). Also able to repair alkylated single-stranded DNA and RNA containing 3-methylcytosine by oxidative demethylation, but with low activity. Also has DNA lyase activity and introduces double-stranded breaks at abasic sites: cleaves both single-stranded DNA and double-stranded DNA at abasic sites, with the greatest activity towards double-stranded DNA with two abasic sites. DNA lyase activity does not require alpha-ketoglutarate and iron and leads to the formation of an irreversible covalent protein-DNA adduct with the 5' DNA product (By similarity). DNA lyase activity is not required during base excision repair and class switch recombination of the immunoglobulin heavy chain during B lymphocyte activation (PubMed:23825659). May play a role in placental trophoblast lineage differentiation (PubMed:18163532).By similarity3 Publications

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.By similarity

Disruption phenotypei

Deficiency results in 80% reduction of the litter size due to embryonic lethality (PubMed:21072209, PubMed:23825659). Surviving pups exhibit a gender bias in favor of males (70% males and 30% females) (PubMed:21072209, PubMed:23825659). Intrauterine growth retardation and placental defects. Altered expression of trophoblast lineage-specific genes (PubMed:18163532). Increased N(6)-methyladenosine (m6A) DNA (PubMed:27027282). No effect on H2AK118 or H2AK119 methylation, suggesting that Alkbh1 does not act as a histone demethylase in vivo (PubMed:27027282).3 Publications

Expressioni

Tissue specificityi

In adult organs, highly expressed in testis, eye, brain and kidney.1 Publication

Developmental stagei

Weak expression throughout the embryo at E8.5. As the cells migrate and differentiate during organogenesis, expressed in the spinal cord, forebrain and branchial arches at E9.5, and also in limb buds at E10.5. Peak expression at E11.5 in the frontonasal process including telencephalon, maxillary, mandibular and hyoid arches, upper and lower limb buds and midbrain and rhombomere 1 roof plates. Expression decreases considerably from E11.5 to E12.5 (PubMed:21072209). At E8.5 is highly expressed in the chorion and the ectoplacental cone. At E10.5 is highly expressed in multiple trophoblast lineages (spongiotrophoblasts, giant cell trophoblasts, glycogen cells, and labyrinthine trophoblasts). The highest placental level is at E9.5 and subsequently decreases until parturition (PubMed:18163532).2 Publications

Caution

H2A histone demethylase activity was observed in vitro (PubMed:22961808). The relevance of such activity is however unclear and additional experimental evidence would be needed to confirm this activity in vivo.1 Publication
