ALKBH1 (AlkB Homolog 2, Alpha-Ketoglutarate Dependent Dioxygenase) is a member of ALKBH protein family. It can repair alkylated DNA and RNA containing 1-methyladenine and 3-methylcytosine by oxidative demethylation. ALKBH1 can also repair alkylated DNA containing 1-ethenoadenine (in vitro). Has strong preference for double-stranded DNA. It can release modified bases from both DNA and RNA. The oxidative demethylation requires molecular oxygen, alpha-ketoglutarate and iron.
