Enzyme Commission Primary Name: DNA-(apurinic or apyrimidinic site) lyase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: AP lyase, AP endonuclease class I, endodeoxyribonuclease (apurinic or apyrimidinic), deoxyribonuclease (apurinic or apyrimidinic), E. coli endonuclease III, phage-T4 UV endonuclease, Micrococcus luteus UV endonuclease, AP site-DNA 5'-phosphomonoester-lyase, X-ray endonuclease III
Enzyme Commission Summary:
The C-O-P bond 3' to the apurinic or apyrimidinic site in DNA is broken by a β-elimination reaction, leaving a 3'-terminal unsaturated sugar and a product with a terminal 5'-phosphate
'Nicking' of the phosphodiester bond is due to a lyase-type reaction, not hydrolysis. This group of enzymes was previously listed as endonucleases, under EC 220.127.116.11.
