PROSITE documentation PDOC50165
UvrC family homology region profile


In prokaryote, nucleotide excision repair, DNA damage recognition and processing are achieved by the action of the uvrA, uvrB, and uvrC protein complex [1].

UvrC proteins contain 4 conserved regions: the UVR domain which interacts with uvrB (see <PDOC50151>), a Helix hairpin Helix (HhH) domain important for 5 prime incision of damage DNA, the GIY-YIG domain (see <PDOC50164>) and a central homology region of unknown function, which is specific for UvrC proteins.
