DNA ligases join single-strand breaks in double-stranded DNA by catalyzing the formation of a phosphodiester bond between adjacent 5'-phosphate and 3'-hydroxyl termini. Their function is essential to maintain the integrity of the genome in DNA replication, recombination and repair. A recombinant ATP-dependent DNA ligase from the hyperthermophilic anaerobic(More)
Biochemical analysis of enantioselective short-chain alcohol dehydrogenase from the hyperthermophilic archaeon Thermococcus sibiricus (TsAdh319) revealed unique polyextremophilic properties of the enzyme - half-life of 1 h at 100 °C, tolerance to high salt (up to 4 M) and organic solvents (50% v/v) concentrations. To elucidate the molecular basis of(More)
