UNG, a uracil DNA glycosylase, recognizes DNA damage that converts cytosine to uracil through deamination, creating a U:G base pair. UNG also recognizes U:A base pairs created when dUMP is misincorporated during DNA synthesis. The UNG transcription isoform 2, labeled as UNG-1 and also known as UDG2, functions in the nucleus, while the UNG transcription isoform 1, which is not annotated here, functions in mitochondria (Parikh et al. 1998).
