NTHL1 (hNTH1; endonuclease III-like protein 1) acts as a FapyA DNA glycosylase to cleave FapyA (4,6-diamino-5-formamidopyrimidine), an imidazole ring-opened adenine derivative formed during oxidative stress (Evans et al. 2004), from the DNA sugar phosphate backbone, creating an apurinic/apyrimidinic (AP) site (Luna et al. 2000, Hu et al. 2005). After the AP site is created, NTHL1 can act as a beta lyase to cleave the DNA strand 5' to the AP site (Ikeda et al. 1998).
