Thermostable uracil-DNA glycosylase from Thermotoga maritima a member of a novel class of DNA repair enzymes
Uracil-DNA glycosylase (UDG) is a ubiquitous enzyme found in eukaryotes and prokaryotes [1][2][3]. This enzyme removes uracil bases that are present in DNA as a result of either deamination ofExpand

Uracil-DNA Glycosylase in the Extreme Thermophile Archaeoglobus fulgidus *
Uracil-DNA glycosylase (UDG) is an essential enzyme for maintaining genomic integrity. Here we describe a UDG from the extreme thermophile Archaeoglobus fulgidus. The enzyme is a member of a newExpand

Purification and characterization of Thermotoga maritima endonuclease IV, a thermostable apurinic/apyrimidinic endonuclease and 3'-repair diesterase.
An endonuclease IV homolog was identified as the product of a conceptual open reading frame in the genome of the hyperthermophilic bacterium Thermotoga maritima. The T. maritima endonuclease IV geneExpand

Escherichia coli single-stranded DNA binding protein stimulates the DNA deoxyribophosphodiesterase activity of exonuclease I.
The E. coli single-stranded binding protein (SSB) has been demonstrated in vitro to be involved in a number of replicative, DNA renaturation, and protective functions. It was shown previously thatExpand

Multiple uracil-DNA glycosylase activities in Deinococcus radiodurans.
The extremely radiation resistant bacterium, Deinococcus radiodurans, contains a spectrum of genes that encode for multiple activities that repair DNA damage. We have cloned and expressed the productExpand

Heat Shock Protein 70 Binds to Human Apurinic/Apyrimidinic Endonuclease and Stimulates Endonuclease Activity at Abasic Sites*
The interaction of human heat shock protein 70 (HSP70) with human apurinic/apyrimidinic endonuclease (HAP1) was demonstrated by coimmunoprecipitation. A combination of HSP70 and HAP1 also caused aExpand

Protein-protein interactions between the Escherichia coli single-stranded DNA-binding protein and exonuclease I.
It was demonstrated previously that a deoxyribophosphodiesterase (dRpase) activity is associated with the DNA repair enzyme exonuclease I, and that this activity is stimulated by the addition of theExpand

Exonuclease IX of Escherichia coli.
The bacteria Escherichia coli contains several exonucleases acting on both double- and single-stranded DNA and in both a 5'-->3' and 3'-->5' direction. These enzymes are involved in replicative,Expand

Characterization of the full length uracil-DNA glycosylase in the extreme thermophile Thermotoga maritima.
A full length (192 amino acids) uracil-DNA glycosylase (TMUDG) has been expressed and purified from the extreme thermophile Thermotoga maritima. This protein is active up to 85 degrees C. The enzymeExpand
