DNA single-strand breaks, a major cause of genome instability, often produce unconventional end groups that must be processed to restore terminal moieties suitable for reparative DNA gap filling or ligation. Here, we describe a bifunctional repair enzyme from Arabidopsis (named AtZDP) that recognizes DNA strand breaks and catalyzes the removal of 3'-end-blocking lesions. The isolated C-terminal domain of AtZDP is by itself competent for 3'-end processing, but not for strand break recognition… CONTINUE READING
