Summaries for NT5M Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NT5M Gene

  • This gene encodes a 5' nucleotidase that localizes to the mitochondrial matrix. This enzyme dephosphorylates the 5'- and 2'(3')-phosphates of uracil and thymine deoxyribonucleotides. The gene is located within the Smith-Magenis syndrome region on chromosome 17. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for NT5M Gene

NT5M (5',3'-Nucleotidase, Mitochondrial) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NT5M include dentin sensitivity. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include nucleotide binding and nucleotidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is NT5C.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NT5M Gene

  • Dephosphorylates specifically the 5 and 2(3)-phosphates of uracil and thymine deoxyribonucleotides, and so protects mitochondrial DNA replication from excess dTTP. Has only marginal activity towards dIMP and dGMP.
