Abstract: PDB Reference: uracil-DNA N-glycosylase, 2jhq.The crystal structure of Vibrio cholerae uracil-DNA N-glycosylase (vcUNG) has been determined to 1.5 Å resolution. Based on this structure, a homology model of Aliivibrio salmonicida uracil-DNA N-glycosylase (asUNG) was built. A previous study demonstrated that asUNG possesses typical cold-adapted features compared with vcUNG, such as a higher catalytic efficiency owing to increased substrate affinity. Specific amino-acid substitutions in asUNG were suggested to b…
