DNA-3-methyladenine glycosylase III activity
name: DNA-3-methyladenine glycosylase III activity
Description: Catalysis of the hydrolysis of alkylated DNA; recognizes and removes alkylated 3-methylpurines and pyrimidines by cleaving the N-C1' glycosidic bond between the target damaged DNA base and the deoxyribose sugar. The reaction releases a free base and leaves an apurinic or apyrimidinic (AP) site.
