The role of exonuclease III and endonuclease IV in the repair of pyrimidine dimers in bacteriophage T4-infected Escherichia coli was examined. UV-irradiated T4 showed reduced survival when plated on an xth nfo double mutant but showed wild-type su...

Recent studies have shown purified preparations of phage T4 UV DNA-incising activity (T4 UV endonuclease or endonuclease V of phage T4) contain a pyrimidine dimer-DNA glycosylase activity that catalyzes hydrolysis of the 5' glycosyl bond of d...

Pyrimidine dimer (PD)-DNA glycosylase activity has been reported in both the M. luteus and phage T4 UV endonucleases. In the present studies the T4 PD-DNA glycosylase has been purified close to physical homogeneity using an assay that measures the...

T4 endonuclease V is an enzyme responsible for the first step of a pyrimidine-dimer specific excision-repair process. The three-dimensional structure of this enzyme has been determined at 1.6A resolution by X-ray crystallography. The enzyme consis...
