Escherichia coli (/?????r?ki? ?ko?la?/; commonly abbreviated E. coli) is a gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped bacterium of the genus Escherichia that is commonly found in the lower intestine of warm-blooded organisms (endotherms). Most E. coli strains are harmless, but some serotypes can cause serious food poisoning in their hosts, and are occasionally responsible for product recalls due to food contamination. The harmless strains are part of the normal flora of the gut, and can benefit their hosts by producing vitamin K2, and preventing colonization of the intestine with pathogenic bacteria.
mutM, also known as formamidopyrimidine DNA glycosylase, is a base excision repair enzyme which recognizes and removes a wide range of oxidized purines from correspondingly damaged DNA. This protein is nonredundant and required to rapidly remove its substrate lesions on the chromosome. In addition, it also repaired a significant portion of the lesions recognized by Endo III, suggesting that it plays a prominent role in the global repair of both purine damage and pyrimidine damage in vivo.
