Accepted name: uracil-DNA glycosylase
Reaction: Hydrolyses single-stranded DNA or mismatched double-stranded DNA and polynucleotides, releasing free uracil
Other name(s): UdgB (ambiguous); uracil-DNA N-glycosylase; UDG (ambiguous); uracil DNA glycohydrolase
Systematic name: uracil-DNA deoxyribohydrolase (uracil-releasing)
Comments: Uracil-DNA glycosylases are widespread enzymes that are found in all living organisms. EC and double-stranded uracil-DNA glycosylase (EC form a central part of the DNA-repair machinery since they initiate the DNA base-excision repair pathway by hydrolysing the N-glycosidic bond between uracil and the deoxyribose sugar thereby catalysing the removal of mis-incorporated uracil from DNA.
