O6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase is a 174 residue enzyme that is involved in DNA repair and the transferring of methyl groups and their covalent attachment to acceptor molecules

 

 

Did you know? The binding sites for the sulfate ions associated with this enzyme have not been equally conserved through time. Half of one of the sites has been greatly conserved [left, THR 111], one has little to no data available [top, ARG 50] and the other one hasn’t been conserved throughout time at all [right, ARG 8].
