Accepted name: DNA-formamidopyrimidine glycosylase
Reaction: Hydrolysis of DNA containing ring-opened 7-methylguanine residues, releasing 2,6-diamino-4-hydroxy-5-(N-methyl)formamidopyrimidine
Other name(s): Fapy-DNA glycosylase; deoxyribonucleate glycosidase; 2,6-diamino-4-hydroxy-5N-formamidopyrimidine-DNA glycosylase; 2,6-diamino-4-hydroxy-5(N-methyl)formamidopyrimidine-DNA glycosylase; formamidopyrimidine-DNA glycosylase; DNA-formamidopyrimidine glycosidase; Fpg protein
Systematic name: DNA glycohydrolase [2,6-diamino-4-hydroxy-5-(N-methyl)formamidopyrimide releasing]
Comments: May play a significant role in processes leading to recovery from mutagenesis and/or cell death by alkylating agents. Also involved in the GO system responsible for removing an oxidatively damaged form of guanine (7,8-dihydro-8-oxoguanine) from DNA.
