Protein

DNA adenine methylase

Gene

dam

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

Functioni

Methylates DNA within the sequence GATC and protects the DNA from cleavage by the restriction endonuclease MboI. Although it shares sequence specificity with a number of type II restriction endonucleases and methylases, it is thought to act in postreplication mismatch repair rather than as a part of a restriction modification system. May also play a role in DNA replication.

Catalytic activityi

S-adenosyl-L-methionine + adenine in DNA = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + N-6-methyladenine in DNA.
