|Other Names||Endonuclease 8-like 2, 322-, DNA glycosylase/AP lyase Neil2, DNA-(apurinic or apyrimidinic site) lyase Neil2, Endonuclease VIII-like 2, Nei homolog 2, NEH2, Nei-like protein 2, NEIL2|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Involved in base excision repair of DNA damaged by oxidation or by mutagenic agents. Has DNA glycosylase activity towards 5-hydroxyuracil and other oxidized derivatives of cytosine with a preference for mismatched double-stranded DNA (DNA bubbles). Has low or no DNA glycosylase activity towards thymine glycol, 2-hydroxyadenine, hypoxanthine and 8-oxoguanine. Has AP (apurinic/apyrimidinic) lyase activity and introduces nicks in the DNA strand. Cleaves the DNA backbone by beta-delta elimination to generate a single-strand break at the site of the removed base with both 3'- and 5'-phosphates.|
|Tissue Location||Detected in testis, skeletal muscle, heart, brain, placenta, lung, pancreas, kidney and liver|

NEIL2 belongs to a class of DNA glycosylases homologous tothe bacterial Fpg/Nei family. These glycosylases initiate the firststep in base excision repair by cleaving bases damaged by reactiveoxygen species and introducing a DNA strand break via theassociated lyase reaction (Bandaru et al., 2002 [PubMed12509226])
