Protein FULL name:

N-methylpurine-DNA glycosylase [Mus musculus].

Mpg (Mus musculus) is product of expression of Mpg gene.

FUNCTION: Hydrolysis of the deoxyribose N-glycosidic bond to excise 3-methyladenine, and 7-methylguanine from the damaged DNA polymer formed by alkylation lesions.

CATALYTIC ACTIVITY: Hydrolysis of alkylated DNA, releasing 3- methyladenine, 3-methylguanine, 7-methylguanine and 7- methyladenine.

SUBUNIT: Binds MBD1 (By similarity).

SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Nucleus (Potential).

SIMILARITY: Belongs to the DNA glycosylase MPG family.

NCBI GenPept GI number(s): 7106361
Species: Mus musculus
