Summary: Exonuclease V - a 5' deoxyribonuclease
The Pfam group coordinates the annotation of Pfam families in Wikipedia, but we have not yet assigned a Wikipedia article to this family. If you think that a particular Wikipedia article provides good annotation, please let us know.
This tab holds the annotation information that is stored in the Pfam database. As we move to using Wikipedia as our main source of annotation, the contents of this tab will be gradually replaced by the Wikipedia tab.
Exonuclease V - a 5' deoxyribonuclease Provide feedback
Exonuclease V is a monomeric 5' deoxyribonuclease that is localised in the nucleus. It degrades single-stranded, but not double-stranded, DNA from the 5'-end, and the products are dinucleotides, except the 3'-terminal tri- and tetranucleotides, which are not degraded. The initial hydrolytic cut of exonuclease V on the dephosphorylated substrate produces a mixture of dinucleoside monophosphates and trinucleoside diphosphates. The enzyme is processive in action . Exo5 is specific for single-stranded DNA and does not hydrolyze RNA. However, Exo5 has the capacity to slide across 5' double-stranded DNA or 5' RNA sequences and resume cutting two nucleotides downstream of the double-stranded-to-single-stranded junction or RNA-to-DNA junction, respectively .

In Saccharomyces cerevisiae (Baker's yeast), Exo5 is a single strand DNA specific 5'exonuclease, which is involved in mitochondrial DNA replication and recombination. It has the capacity to slide across 5'double-stranded DNA or 5'RNA sequences and resumes cutting two nucleotides downstream of the double-stranded-to-single-stranded junction or RNA-to-DNA junction, respectively [PUBMED:20086101]. It degrades single-stranded, but not double-stranded, DNA from the 5'-end, and the products are dinucleotides, except the 3'-terminal tri- and tetranucleotides, which are not degraded. The initial hydrolytic cut of exonuclease V on the dephosphorylated substrate produces a mixture of dinucleoside monophosphates and trinucleoside diphosphates [PUBMED:3286646]. Exo5 is specific for single-stranded DNA and does not hydrolyze RNA [PUBMED:20086101].

We make a range of alignments for each Pfam-A family:
- the curated alignment from which the HMM for the family is built
- the alignment generated by searching the sequence database using the HMM
- Representative Proteomes (RPs) at 15%, 35%, 55% and 75% co-membership thresholds
- alignment generated by searching the NCBI sequence database using the family HMM
- alignment generated by searching the metagenomics sequence database using the family HMM
You can see the alignments as HTML or in three different sequence viewers:
- Pfam viewer
- an HTML-based viewer that uses DAS to retrieve alignment fragments on request
