DNA Repair

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This article discusses the multitude of mechanisms by which living cells repair spontaneous environmentally induced DNA damage. These include the removal of base damage from the genome by enzyme-catalyzed excision, the direct reversal of base damage by single-step enzyme-catalyzed reactions, and the repair of strand breaks in DNA. The relationships between defective DNA repair and human disease and the generation of mouse models of such diseases are also discussed.
