Unnamed Gene ID: 947067

Known also as: ECK2578; JW2564;

NCBI Gene ID: 947067
Species: Escherichia coli strain K-12 substr. MG1655

UDG and Ndk form a complex (Goswami, 2006). [More information is available at EcoGene: EG11058]. Uracil can be generated in DNA as a result of misincorporation by DNA polymerase, spontaneous deamination of cytosine, and deamination of cytosine induced by bisulfite or nitrous acid. [More information is available at EcoCyc: EG11058].
