Subunit of: exonuclease VII
Purified Exonuclease VII (ExoVII) has been shown to be specific for single-stranded, linear DNA or duplex DNA with single-stranded termini [Chase74]. ExoVII can initiate hydrolysis at either 5` or 3` ends of DNA with oligonucleotides generated as products [Chase74]. Large oligonucleotides are generated first, and these can be further degraded to smaller oligonucleotides [Chase74a]. ExoVII activity is ATP-independent [Chase74a]. ExoVII is also capable of excision of thymine dimers from duplex DNA after incision by an endonuclease specific for thymine dimers [Chase74a]. ExoVII activity remains high in the presence of EDTA, is increased by Mg2+, and is optimum at a pH of 7.9 in phosphate buffer [Chase74]. The friction coefficient of ExoVII suggests an asymmetric protein structure [Chase74].
Mutants deficient in RecJ, exonuclease I, and exonuclease VII are unusually sensitive to UV irradiation [Viswanathan99]. XseA mutants have increased frequency of recombination and sensitivity to nalidixic acid [Chase77] as well as reduced survivability at elevated temperatures in a polAex- background [Chase77a]. Exonuclease VII has been purified and was found to be composed of 1 subunit of XseA of 54 kDa and 4 subunits of XseB of 10.5 kDa [Vales82]. Overproduction of XseA reduced exonuclease VII acitivity [Chase86]. xseA transcription is repressed when the divergently transcribed guaBA is induced by the cyclic AMP receptor protein [Hutchings00].
