Medical Definition of Deoxyribodipyrimidine photo-lyase

1. An enzyme in yeast that is activated by light, whereupon it can reverse a previous photochemical reaction by cleaving the cyclobutane ring of the thymine dimer. It catalyses the reactivation by light of UV-irradiated DNA and cleaves two carbon-carbon bonds in pyrimidine dimers in DNA. Synonym: dipyrimidine photolyase, photoreactivating enzyme. Chemical name: Deoxyribocyclobutadipyrimidine pyrimidine-lyase Registry number: EC 4.1.99.3 (21 Jun 2000)
