Official Full Name
alkB, alkylation repair homolog 3 (E. coli)
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 (MIM 610602) and ALKBH3 are E. coli AlkB homologs that catalyze the;removal of 1-methyladenine and 3-methylcytosine (Duncan et al., 2002 (PubMed 12486230)).
