Disease relevance of nudF


High impact information on nudF

  • Comparison with other members of the subfamily revealed a conserved proline 16 amino acid residues downstream of the Nudix box, common to all of the ADP-ribose pyrophosphatase subfamily [4].
  • By contrast, Slr1690 showed very low activity for ADP-ribose and had four substitutions of amino acids in the Nudix motif, indicating that Slr1690 is not an active ADP-ribose pyrophosphatase [2].
