26152727 AlkB has a wide variety of substrates, including monoalkyl and exocyclic bridged adducts. (Review)
23825659 ALKBH1's role in class switch recombination and abasic site cleavage during base excision repair
23577621 Primary and secondary lysine residues of ALKBH1 are involved in lyase reactions and form a covalent adduct with the 5'DNA product, demonstrating two plausible chemical mechanisms to account for the covalent attachment.
21956739 Homology modeling and different tertiary structure based study were performed on human AlkB homolog hABH1.
19959401 show that ABH1 unexpectedly has a second activity, cleaving DNA at abasic (AP) sites such as those arising spontaneously from alkylation-dependent depurination reactions.
18603530 hABH1 is a functional mitochondrial AlkB homolog that repairs 3-methylcytosine in single-stranded DNA and RNA.
12594517 AlkB homologues, hABH2 and hABH3, also are oxidative DNA demethylases; AlkB and hABH3, but not hABH2, also repair RNA
