The amino acid sequence required for 5' --> 3' exonuclease activity of Bacillus caldotenax DNA polymerase.

Abstract:

We studied the 5' --> 3' exonuclease activity of Bacillus caldotenax DNA polymerase by site-directed mutagenesis. Among seven mutants constructed, two mutant DNA polymerases with an amino acid substitution of Gly184 --> Asp or Gly192 --> Asp were confirmed to be deficient in this exonuclease. The two positions corresponded to those of the Escherichia coli DNA polymerase I mutants defective in 5' --> 3' exonuclease, polA480ex and polA214. These results provide experimental support for the proposed amino acid sequence essential for the 5' --> 3' exonuclease activity associated with eubacterial polymerase I-like DNA polymerases (family A), including E.coli and Thermus aquaticus.
