Protein FULL name:

UmuC [Escherichia coli].

UmuC (Escherichia coli strain K-12 substr. MG1655) is product of expression of umuC gene.

UmuC is involved in:

TLS in Escherichia coli strain K-12 substr. MG1655
DDS in Escherichia coli strain K-12 substr. MG1655


FUNCTION: Involved in UV protection and mutation. Essential for induced (or SOS) mutagenesis. May modify the DNA replication machinery to allow bypass synthesis across a damaged template.

INTERACTION: P0AFY8:seqA; NbExp=1; IntAct=EBI-1119849, EBI-552553;

SIMILARITY: Belongs to the DNA polymerase type-Y family.

SIMILARITY: Contains 1 umuC domain.

NCBI GenPept GI number(s): 84060801
Species: Escherichia coli
