id: GO:0043734
name: DNA-N1-methyladenine dioxygenase activity
namespace: molecular_function
type: go
obsolete: False

Description: Catalysis of the oxidative demethylation of N1-methyladenine and N3-methylcytosine in DNA and RNA, with concomitant decarboxylation of 2-oxoglutarate and releases oxidized methylgroup on N1-methyladenine and N3-methylcytosine as formaldehyde.
