  • Function

    Nuclease involved in single-strand and double-strand DNA break repair. Recruited to sites of DNA damage through interaction with poly(ADP-ribose), a polymeric post-translational modification synthesized transiently at sites of chromosomal damage to accelerate DNA strand break repair reactions. Displays apurinic-apyrimidinic (AP) endonuclease and 3'-5' exonuclease activities in vitro. Also able to introduce nicks at hydroxyuracil and other types of pyrimidine base damage.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the APLF family.
    Contains 1 FHA-like domain.
    Contains 2 PBZ-type zinc fingers.
  • Domain

    The PBZ-type zinc fingers (also named CYR) mediate non-covalent poly(ADP-ribose)-binding. Poly(ADP-ribose)-binding is dependent on the presence of zinc and promotes its recruitment to DNA damage sites.
    The FHA-like domain mediates interaction with XRCC1 and XRCC4.
  • Post-translational

    Poly-ADP-ribosylated. In addition to binding non covalently poly(ADP-ribose) via its PBZ-type zinc fingers, the protein is also covalently poly-ADP-ribosylated by PARP1.
    Phosphorylated in an ATM-dependent manner upon double-strand DNA break.
  • Cellular localization

    Nucleus. Cytoplasm > cytosol. Localizes to DNA damage sites. Accumulates at single-strand breaks and double-strand breaks via the PBZ-type zinc fingers.
