DNA polymerase IV - Q47155 (DPO4_ECOLI)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

  • Number of PDB entries for Q47155: 30
Poorly processive, error-prone DNA polymerase involved in translesion repair and untargeted mutagenesis (PubMed:10488344, PubMed:10801133). Copies undamaged DNA at stalled replication forks, which arise in vivo from mismatched or misaligned primer ends. These misaligned primers can be extended by Pol IV. Exhibits no 3'-5' exonuclease (proofreading) activity (PubMed:10488344). Overexpression of Pol IV results in increased frameshift mutagenesis. It is required for stationary-phase adaptive mutation, which provides the bacterium with flexibility in dealing with environmental stress, enhancing long-term survival and evolutionary fitness. Not seen to be involved in translesion snythesis even when stimulated by the beta slding-clamp and clamp-loading complex, which do however increase non-targeted DNA polymerase efficiency 3,000-fold, may be due to targeting to stalled replication forks on nondamaged DNA (PubMed:10801133, PubMed:16168375). Involved in translesional synthesis, in conjunction with the beta clamp from PolIII (PubMed:14592985, PubMed:14729336). UniProt

Subunit Structure
Monomer. Interacts with beta sliding clamp, which confers increased processivity (PubMed:14592985, PubMed:14729336,PubMed:16168375). UniProt
The catalytic core consists of fingers, palm and thumb subdomains, but the fingers and thumb subdomains are much smaller than in high-fidelity polymerases; residues from five sequence motifs of the Y-family cluster around an active site cleft that can accommodate DNA and nucleotide substrates with relaxed geometric constraints, with consequently higher rates of misincorporation and low processivity. It lacks the O helices present in high-fidelity DNA polymerases in the fingers domain (By similarity). UniProt

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Variation data (sourced from UniProt) shows non-genetic variation from the ExPASy   and dbSNP   websites.
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB

Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
