Comments [?]

Function DNA ligase that seals nicks in double-stranded DNA during DNA replication, DNA recombination and DNA repair.
Catalytic activity ATP + (deoxyribonucleotide)(n) + (deoxyribonucleotide)(m) = AMP + diphosphate + (deoxyribonucleotide)(n+m).
Cofactor a divalent metal cation
Similarity Belongs to the ATP-dependent DNA ligase family.
