Mutant Thermotoga maritima endonuclease V (Tma endoV M2-6)



Tma endoV M2-6 is an endonuclease having modified substrate specificity created by amino acid substitutions to Tma endoV (endonuclease V from thermophilic bacterium Thermotoga maritima). Tma endoV has a deoxyinosine 3'-endonuclease activity, i.e. it recognizes a hypoxanthine (the deoxyinosine base) and exhibits a nicking activity to hydrolyze the second phosphodiester bond to 3' the lesion base [1-4]. The wild-type endoV also shows nonspecific DNA cleaving activities, independent of the specific recognition of the lesion structure. Tma endoV M2-6 exhibits a significantly reduced nonspecific activity toward an intact DNA and retains the specific endonuclease activity against a deoxyinosine-containing DNA.

Optimum Temperature: 65°C

Figure 1. Degradation of double-stranded DNA with Tma endoV M2-6
Upper panel : 12 Units of Tma endoV M2-6 was incubated with 217 ng of double-stranded DNA containing various contents of dI in 1 x Reaction Buffer (total volume 50 μl) at 65 Ž for indicated time. Lower panel : For comparison, the same amount of wild-type Tma endoV was incubated in the same conditions. Tma endoV M2-6 degraded only dI-containing DNA specifically, and exhibited no significant degradation of the normal DNA (not containing dI).
Figure 2. Cleavage time course of dI-containing double-stranded DNA.
1 Unit of Tma endoV M2-6 and 217 ng of dI-containing double-stranded DNA (dI-malB2) were incubated in 1 x Reaction Buffer (total volume 50 μl) at 65Ž. Time courses of DNA cleavage (%) by the fresh enzyme (closed circles) and by the preheated enzyme at 65 Ž for 1 hour (open boxes) are shown. Tma endoV M2-6 did not show significant loss of activity level even after the heat treatment at 65 Ž for 1 hour.

Cleavage products were analyzed by denaturing polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. The carboxyfluorescein(FAM)-labeled DNA fragments were excited at 473 nm.
