"Human AlkB homolog (ABH) proteins comprise a large family of iron-dependent dioxygenases with diverse functions.  The distinct subcellular localization of ABH proteins(shown here in HeLa human cervical carcinoma cells) highlights their roles in numerous cellular processes, including DNA and RNA repair, the DNA damage response and cell death."
