Summaries for ALKBH2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ALKBH2 Gene

  • The Escherichia coli AlkB protein protects against the cytotoxicity of methylating agents by repair of the specific DNA lesions generated in single-stranded DNA. ALKBH2 and ALKBH3 (MIM 610603) are E. coli AlkB homologs that catalyze the removal of 1-methyladenine and 3-methylcytosine (Duncan et al., 2002 [PubMed 12486230]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]

GeneCards Summary for ALKBH2 Gene

ALKBH2 (AlkB Homolog 2, Alpha-Ketoglutarate Dependent Dioxygenase) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are DNA Damage Reversal and DNA Double-Strand Break Repair. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include oxidoreductase activity and ferrous iron binding. An important paralog of this gene is ALKBH3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ALKBH2 Gene

  • Dioxygenase that repairs alkylated DNA and RNA containing 1-methyladenine and 3-methylcytosine by oxidative demethylation. Can also repair alkylated DNA containing 1-ethenoadenine (in vitro). Has strong preference for double-stranded DNA. Has low efficiency with single-stranded substrates. Requires molecular oxygen, alpha-ketoglutarate and iron.
