  Domain Name: Adenylation_DNA_liga
Adenylation domain of eukaryotic DNA Ligase I. ATP-dependent polynucleotide ligases catalyze phosphodiester bond formation using nicked nucleic acid substrates with the high energy nucleotide of ATP as a cofactor in a three step reaction mechanism. DNA ligases play a vital role in the diverse processes of DNA replication, recombination and repair. ATP-dependent ligases are present in many organisms such as viruses, bacteriophages, eukarya, archaea and bacteria. Some organisms express a variety of different ligases which appear to be targeted to specific functions. There are three classes of ATP-dependent DNA ligases in eukaryotic cells (I, III and IV). DNA ligase I is required for the ligation of Okazaki fragments during lagging-strand DNA synthesis and for base excision repair (BER). DNA ligases have a highly modular architecture consisting of a unique arrangement of two or more discrete domains. The adenylation and C-terminal oligonucleotide/oligosaccharide binding (OB)-fold domains comprise a catalytic core unit that is common to most members of the ATP-dependent DNA ligase family. The adenylation domain binds ATP and contains many of the active-site residues. DNA ligase I is the main replicative ligase in eukaryotes. The common catalytic core unit comprises six conserved sequence motifs (I, III, IIIa, IV, V and VI) that define this family of related nucleotidyltransferases.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
