Coprecipitation of 3'----5' exonuclease and DNA polymerase gamma with anti-DNA polymerase gamma antibody.

J Biochem (1990), Volume 107, Page 213

Abstract:

Highly purified preparations of chick embryo DNA polymerase gamma contained 3'----5' exonuclease activity which might be responsible for the exonucleolytic proofreading during DNA synthesis [Kunkel, T.A. & Soni, A. (1988) J. Biol. Chem. 262, 4450-4459]. A rabbit antibody produced against highly purified chick DNA polymerase gamma precipitated 3'----5' exonuclease activity to the same extent as DNA polymerase gamma activity. Furthermore, the antibody neutralized the two enzyme activities to an equal extent. However, the exonuclease activity was more resistant than DNA polymerase gamma activity to thermal treatment at 50 degrees C, although both activities were partially protected with polynucleotides. The results obtained suggest that these two enzymes are associated as a single enzyme complex or that the two activities reside in a single molecule, and the active site of DNA polymerase gamma and 3'----5' exonuclease are, although not identical, closely correlated.
