Official Full Name
nei endonuclease VIII-like 2 (E. coli)
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)).
