- ID: MMSYN1_0097
- Name: 5'-3' exonuclease, N-terminal resolvase-like domain protein
- Organism: JCVI-Syn3.0
- UniProt ID: C7LLW8
- Description: DNA Polymerase I (Pol I) is a multifunctional enzyme that combines a DNA polymerase activity, a 5' to 3' exonuclease activity and a 3' to 5' proofreading exonuclease activity. It is required for several types of DNA repair and appears to be the primary enzyme responsible for stripping RNA primers from newly-synthesized DNA and replacing them with DNA . Interestingly, DNA polymerase I is responsible for both a 5’ to 3’ exonuclease activity and a 3’ to 5’ proofreading exonuclease activity. This gene probably encodes for the 5' to 3' exonuclease capability .
- DNA Length: 912 base pairs.

Function and Homologs
- Functional Category: DNA repair.
- Product: DNA polymerase I, 5'-3' exonuclease
- Module: DNA polymerase.
- Closest homologous proteins: The top (max three) homologous proteins to this protein, as identified by BLAST searches. (based on UniProt BLAST)
- Equivalent E. coli / JCVI functional protein: EG10746
This EcoCyc code is for DNA polymerase I (or polA). However, all BLAST searches indicate that this homolog only has ~30% alignment with this JCVI gene, which explains why the page for EG10746 does not link back to this JCVI gene page. This may mean that my gene is a partial component of DNA polymerase I.
- Expression Level: Medium
- Expression Level Hypothesis: DNA polymerase is essential for maintenance of the DNA, especially during replication.
- Expression Level References and Description: During my BLAST alignment for this gene sequence, the closest gene to align with this sequence was polA, which encodes DNA polymerase I. As a result, I used the results for polA in the M. genitalium database, even though this gene is probably not polA (it could be an ancillary gene or protein that is associated with polA).
- Expression Time: Late
- Expression Time Hypothesis: DNA polymerase is important during replication, which is a process that occurs late in the the lifespan of a cell.
- Expression Time References and Description: Gene description (assuming that it is, or is related to polA); however, I am not sure of the exact identity of this gene.
- Other Components: EG10242
- Possible Dependencies: DNA metabolism; if DNA is not synthesized in the cell, then DNA polymerase cannot edit/repair any DNA. Given that this gene is specifically an exonuclease, it requires nucleotides in order to function. More DNA that is present in the cell means more DNA polymerase I activity.
- Process: 5'-3' exonuclease activity
- Inputs: Deoxynucleoside triphosphate + DNA(n)
