DNA-Directed DNA Polymerase MeSH Descriptor Data 2024


MeSH Heading
DNA-Directed DNA Polymerase
Tree Number(s)
D08.811.913.696.445.308.300
Unique ID
D004259
RDF Unique Identifier

Annotation
general; prefer specifics
Scope Note
DNA-dependent DNA polymerases found in bacteria, animal and plant cells. During the replication process, these enzymes catalyze the addition of deoxyribonucleotide residues to the end of a DNA strand in the presence of DNA as template-primer. They also possess exonuclease activity and therefore function in DNA repair.
