NEIL1 or NEIL2 bound to AP-dsDNA (DNA with apurinic/apyrimidinic site) act as beta/delta lyases to cleave the AP-site containing DNA strand 5' to the AP site, thus producing DNA strand with a terminal 3' phosphate (3'Pi) and a DNA strand with a terminal 5'-deoxyribosephosphate (5'dRP) (Wiederhold et al. 2004, Das et al. 2006).
