Summary of "An insight into the dependence of the deamination rate of human APOBEC3F on the length of single-stranded DNA, which is affected by the concentrations of APOBEC3F and single-stranded DNA."

APOBEC3F (A3F), a member of the human APOBEC3 (A3) family of cytidine deaminases, acts as an anti-HIV-1 factor by deaminating deoxycytidine in the complementary DNA of the viral genome. A full understanding of the deamination behavior of A3F awaits further investigation.

Polymorphisms of the cytidine deaminase APOBEC3F have different HIV-1 restriction efficiencies.

The APOBEC3 enzyme family are host restriction factors that induce mutagenesis of HIV-1 proviral genomes through the deamination of cytosine to form uracil in nascent single-stranded (-)DNA. HIV-1 sup...

APOBEC3 Host Restriction Factors of HIV-1 Can Change the Template Switching Frequency of Reverse Transcriptase.

The APOBEC3 family of deoxycytidine deaminases have the ability to restrict HIV-1 through deamination-dependent and deamination-independent mechanisms. Although the generation of mutations through dea...

High-precision electrochemical measurements of the guanine-, mismatch- and length-dependence of electron transfer from electrode-bound DNA are consistent with a contact-mediated mechanism.

Despite 25 years' effort, serious questions remain regarding the mechanism(s) underlying electron transfer through (or from) electrode-bound double-stranded DNA. In part this is because a control expe...

Role of endonuclease III enzymes in uracil repair.

Endonuclease III is a DNA glycosylase previously known for its repair activity on oxidative pyrimidine damage. Uracil is a deamination product derived from cytosine. Uracil DNA N-glycosylase (UNG) and...
