DESCRIPTION
Also known as ADAA_BACSU, adaA. Is involved in the adaptive response to alkylation damage in DNA caused by alkylating agents. Repairs the methylphosphotriester lesions in DNA by a direct and irreversible transfer of the methyl group to one of its own cysteine residues., The methylation of AdaA by methylphosphotriesters in DNA leads to its activation as a transcriptional regulator that activates the transcription of the ada operon which consists of adaA and adaB, and of the adjacent gene alkA.
