This protein can release 3',5',8-OH-dGDP (from modified DNA), which may subsequently be hydrolyzed to 8-OH-dGuo by nucleotidases (8).
Other forms of 5prime nucleotidase be present in the cytoplasm and lysosomes and can be illustrious from ecto-NT5 by their substrate affinities, requirement for divalent magnesium ion, activation by ATP, and inhibition by inorganic phosphate[8].
There were a significant positive correlations between alkaline, acid DNase activity and Ecto-5-prime nucleotidase with serum lead in group A [Iraqi workers employed on the operation of diesel generators] as shown in table 6.
