Most phages contain DNA polymerases, which are essential for DNA replication and propagation in infected host bacteria. However, our knowledge on phage-encoded DNA polymerases remains limited. This study investigated the function of a novel DNA polymerase of PaP1, which is the lytic phage of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. PaP1 encodes its sole DNA polymerase(More)
As one of the most common forms of oxidative DNA damage, 7,8-dihydro-8-oxo-2'-deoxyguanosine (8-oxoG) generally leads to G:C to T:A mutagenesis. To study DNA replication encountering 8-oxoG by the sole DNA polymerase (Gp90) of Pseudomonasaeruginosa phage PaP1, we performed steady-state and pre-steady-state kinetic analyses of nucleotide incorporation(More)
