motifs/domains
  • three conserved exonuclease motifs with an HXAXXD sequence in the third motif
  • mono polymer homomer , dimer
    HOMOLOGY
    interspecies homolog to murine Trex2
    Homologene
    FAMILY
  • exonuclease superfamily
  • TREX family
  • CATEGORY enzyme , DNA associated
    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     intracellular
    intracellular,nucleus
    basic FUNCTION
  • catalyzing excision of nucleoside monophosphates from 3' termini of DNA (exonuclease)
  • may be a subunit of DNA polymerase III, which does not have intrinsic exonuclease activity
  • may play a role in DNA repair
  • nonprocessive enzyme that removes nucleotides at DNA 3' termini
  • plays an important function during DNA metabolism and cellular proliferation
  • undergoes a conformational change in the active site upon DNA binding including ordering of active site residues and a shift of an active site helix (de Silva 2009)
  • CELLULAR PROCESS nucleotide, repair
