coli AlkB family homologs in mammalian (ALKBH1-9) cells have been characterized as diverse demethylases functioning as removal of the methyl group from ribonucleobases, including ALKBH1, ALKBH5, ALKBH8, and ALKBH9, respectively [85, 95, 101].
Electrophoresis was carried out for 18 h at 600C at a constant voltage of 60 V with a linear denaturant gradient of 47--60% (universal bacterial community), 45-62% (alkB community), and 40-50% for fungal community.
The study, published in the journal Nature, found that AlkB uses a particular chemical process called oxidative demethylation to repair DNA, relying on the presence of iron and several other chemicals.
``It might also be possible to use AlkB to protect cells in the bone marrow that can otherwise get damaged by chemotherapy, which may reduce the side-effects of treatment.''
Specifically, AlkB human homologues (ALBH or ALKBH enzymes) are located in the nucleoplasm and inside the mitochondria where they catalyze the demethylation of 3-meC residues on DNA and RNA, respectively [31].
