basic FUNCTION
  • can degrade both 8-oxo-dGTP and 8-oxo-dGDP, although the intrinsic enzyme activity of NUDT15 is considerably lower than that of NUDT1
  • NUDT1, NUDT15, NUDT18 may function together to help maintain the high fidelity of DNA replication and transcription under oxidative stress
  • is a pharmacogenetic determinant for thiopurine-induced leukopenia in diverse populations
  • is not a biologically relevant 8-oxo-dGTPase, and NUDT1 is the most prominent sanitizer of the cellular deoxyribonucleoside triphosphates (dNTPs) pool known to date

    protein
  • physical interaction between PCNA and MutT homolog2 (NUDT15), a new member of the MutT-related proteins that hydrolyzes 8-oxo-7,8-dihydrodeoxyguanosine triphosphate (8-oxo-dGTP)
  • NUDT15 ablation potentiated induction of the DNA damage checkpoint and cancer cell death by 6-thioguanine
