Uracil-DNA Glycosylase cleaves uracil from dU-containing DNA by breaking the N-glycosidic bond between the uracil base and the sugar backbone. This cleavage generates alkali-sensitive apyrimidinic sites that DNA polymerase blocks from replication or prevents from becoming a hybridization site. Single-stranded and double-stranded dU-containing DNA are substrates for uracil-DNA glycosylase, whereas normal dT-containing RNA and DNA are not.
Uracil-DNA glycosylase can also be used to increase the cloning efficiency of PCR products that have incorporated dU-containing primers, as well as to increase the efficiency of site-directed mutagenesis. Uracil-DNA Glycosylase derived from Gadus morhua has all the attributes of the enzyme derived from E. coli with the added benefit of being heat-labile. It is completely and irreversibly inactivated after 10 minutes of incubation at 50°C.
