Protein FULL name:

uracil-DNA glycosylase isoform a [Mus musculus].

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

FUNCTION: Excises uracil residues from the DNA which can arise as a result of misincorporation of dUMP residues by DNA polymerase or due to deamination of cytosine.

CATALYTIC ACTIVITY: Hydrolyzes single-stranded DNA or mismatched double-stranded DNA and polynucleotides, releasing free uracil.

SUBUNIT: Monomer (By similarity).

SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Isoform 1: Mitochondrion.


PTM: Isoform 1 is processed by cleavage of a transit peptide.

SIMILARITY: Belongs to the uracil-DNA glycosylase family.

NCBI GenPept GI number(s): 101943608
Species: Mus musculus
