Other sytems with related functions (this subsystem had gotten too big):
DNA repair, bacterial DinG and relatives
DNA repair, bacterial MutL-MutS system
DNA repair, bacterial RecFOR pathway
DNA repair, UvrABC system
DNA repair, bacterial UvrD and related helicases
Rec A should be found in all but a very few bacteria (such as Buchnera).
DNA repair protein RadA
Formerly called Sms, but to ensure a collision with the Archaeal RecA equivalent, it is now RadA
SbcCD is an ATP-dependent exonuclease that cleaves hairpin structures in DNA recombination and repair
YhaO (Bacillus subtilis nomenclature) is included to catch SbcD paralogs.
DNA polymerase IV (EC 188.8.131.52) = DinB = DinP = error-prone DNA polymerase responsible for replication at mispaired primers.
Error-prone repair protein UmuC = SamB (on plasmids)
Error-prone repair protein UmuD
Single-stranded DNA-binding protein
(just to hold it until it gets into DNA packaging and/or DNA replication)
Endonuclease IV (EC 184.108.40.206) cleaves DNA at apurinic or apyrimidinic sites (AP sites) for short patch repair.
Endonuclease V (EC 220.127.116.11) cleaves DNA near irreguarities including deoxyinosine, deoxyuridine, and base mismatches.

for deoxyinosine, deoxyuridine, and base mismatches in DNA. J. Biol. Chem. 272: 30774-30779.]
Exodeoxyribonuclease III (EC 18.104.22.168)
3'-5'-exonuclease that removes damaged strand at apurinic or apyrimidinic sites (AP sites).
Also removes RNA from RNA/DNA duplex.
Methylated-DNA--protein-cysteine methyltransferase (EC 22.214.171.124)
O6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase (EC 126.96.36.199)
transfers the methyl group from methylated DNA (where it is damage) to a cysteine on the protein. It is a single
It is not unusal to have at least two genes. In B. subtilis, one is damage inducible and the other is constitutive.
It is similar to the C-terminal domain of "ADA regulatory protein"
ADA regulatory protein is a bifunctional protein that regulates rexpression of alkylation reponse genes and at
the same time is itself a methylated-DNA--protein-cysteine methyltransferase.
Alkylated DNA repair protein AlkB
Provides resistance to the alkylating agents MMS and DMS.

alkylation-induced toxicity. J Bacteriol. 176: 6255-61.]
