alkB (P05050) - Overview - Molecular Target Synopsis
alkB, Alpha-ketoglutarate-dependent dioxygenase AlkB
Enzyme Classification 184.108.40.206
Also Known as ALKB_ECOLI, alkB, aidD
Dioxygenase that repairs alkylated DNA and RNA containing 3-methylcytosine or 1-methyladenine by oxidative demethylation. Has highest activity towards 3-methylcytosine. Has lower activity towards alkylated DNA containing ethenoadenine, and no detectable activity towards 1-methylguanine or 3-methylthymine. Accepts double-stranded and single-stranded substrates. Requires molecular oxygen, alpha-ketoglutarate and iron. Provides extensive resistance to alkylating agents such as MMS and DMS (SN2 agents), but not to MMNG and MNU (SN1 agents).
