Western blot analysis of MUTYH over-expressed 293 cell line, cotransfected with MUTYH Validated Chimera RNAi ( Cat # H00004595-R01V ) (Lane 2) or non-transfected control (Lane 1). Blot probed with MUTYH monoclonal antibody (M01), clone 4D10 (Cat # H00004595-M01 ). GAPDH ( 36.1 kDa ) used as specificity and loading control.
This gene encodes a DNA glycosylase involved in oxidative DNA damage repair. The enzyme excises adenine bases from the DNA backbone at sites where adenine is inappropriately paired with guanine, cytosine, or 8-oxo-7,8-dihydroguanine, a major oxidatively damaged DNA lesion. The protein is localized to the nucleus and mitochondria. Mutations in this gene result in heritable predisposition to colon and stomach cancer. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq
