Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/2000 - 1/10000. Predicted molecular weight: 99 kDa.
  • Application notesIs unsuitable for IP.
  • Target

    • FunctionDNA polymerase specifically involved in DNA repair. Plays an important role in translesion synthesis, where the normal high-fidelity DNA polymerases cannot proceed and DNA synthesis stalls. Depending on the context, it inserts the correct base, but causes frequent base transitions, transversions and frameshifts. Lacks 3'-5' proofreading exonuclease activity. Forms a Schiff base with 5'-deoxyribose phosphate at abasic sites, but does not have lyase activity.
    • Tissue specificityDetected at low levels in testis, spleen, prostate and ovary. Detected at very low levels in kidney, colon, brain, heart, liver, lung, placenta, pancreas and peripheral blood leukocytes.
    • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the DNA polymerase type-Y family.
      Contains 2 UBZ-type zinc fingers.
      Contains 1 umuC domain.
    • DomainThe catalytic core consists of fingers, palm and thumb subdomains, but the fingers and thumb subdomains are much smaller than in high-fidelity polymerases; residues from five sequence motifs of the Y-family cluster around an active site cleft that can accommodate DNA and nucleotide substrates with relaxed geometric constraints, with consequently higher rates of misincorporation and low processivity.
    • Cellular localizationNucleus. Detected throughout the nucleus and at replication foci.
