Summaries for NEIL2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NEIL2 Gene

  • NEIL2 belongs to a class of DNA glycosylases homologous to the bacterial Fpg/Nei family. These glycosylases initiate the first step in base excision repair by cleaving bases damaged by reactive oxygen species and introducing a DNA strand break via the associated lyase reaction (Bandaru et al., 2002 [PubMed 12509226])[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]

GeneCards Summary for NEIL2 Gene

NEIL2 (Nei Like DNA Glycosylase 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are DNA Double-Strand Break Repair and Depyrimidination. GO annotations related to this gene include nucleic acid binding and damaged DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is NEIL3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NEIL2 Gene

  • Involved in base excision repair of DNA damaged by oxidation or by mutagenic agents. Has DNA glycosylase activity towards 5-hydroxyuracil and other oxidized derivatives of cytosine with a preference for mismatched double-stranded DNA (DNA bubbles). Has low or no DNA glycosylase activity towards thymine glycol, 2-hydroxyadenine, hypoxanthine and 8-oxoguanine. Has AP (apurinic/apyrimidinic) lyase activity and introduces nicks in the DNA strand. Cleaves the DNA backbone by beta-delta elimination to generate a single-strand break at the site of the removed base with both 3- and 5-phosphates.

Function for NEIL2 Gene

Molecular function for NEIL2 Gene

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot CatalyticActivity:
Removes damaged bases from DNA, leaving an abasic site.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot CatalyticActivity:
The C-O-P bond 3 to the apurinic or apyrimidinic site in DNA is broken by a beta-elimination reaction, leaving a 3-terminal unsaturated sugar and a product with a terminal 5-phosphate.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot EnzymeRegulation:
Acetylation of Lys-50 leads to loss of DNA nicking activity. Acetylation of Lys-154 has no effect.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Function:
Involved in base excision repair of DNA damaged by oxidation or by mutagenic agents. Has DNA glycosylase activity towards 5-hydroxyuracil and other oxidized derivatives of cytosine with a preference for mismatched double-stranded DNA (DNA bubbles). Has low or no DNA glycosylase activity towards thymine glycol, 2-hydroxyadenine, hypoxanthine and 8-oxoguanine. Has AP (apurinic/apyrimidinic) lyase activity and introduces nicks in the DNA strand.
