[Quantitative parameters of the 3'-5'-exonuclease reaction of human apurinic/apyrimidinic endonuclease 1 and DNA with single-strand breaks containing dYMP or their modified analogues].


Human apurinic/apyrimidinic (AP) endonuclease 1 (APE1) is a multifunctional enzyme. In addition to its main AP endonuclease activity, the cleavage of DNA 5' to the AP site, it displays other weak enzymatic activities. One of them is 3'-5' exonuclease activity, which is most effectively pronounced for DNA duplexes containing modified or mismatched nucleotides at the 3' end of the primer chain. There is a presumption that APE1 can correct the DNA synthesis catalyzed by DNA polymerase beta during the base excision repair process. We determined the quantitative parameters of the 3'-5' exonuclease reaction in dependence on the reaction conditions to reveal the detailed mechanism of this process. The kinetic parameters of APE1 exonuclease excision of mismatched dCMP and dTMP from the 3' terminus of single-strand DNA and from photoreactive dCMP analogues applied for photoaffinity modification of proteins and DNA in recombinant systems and cell/nuclear extracts were determined.
