UNG Excises uracil residues from the DNA which can arise as a result of misincorporation of dUMP residues by DNA polymerase or due to deamination of cytosine. Belongs to the uracil-DNA glycosylase (UDG) superfamily. UNG family. Isoform 1 is widely expressed with the highest expression in skeletal muscle, heart and testicles. Isoform 2 has the highest expression levels in tissues containing proliferating cells. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
