Nucleotide Excision Repair: Biology

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Nucleotide excision repair (NER) is a fundamental DNA repair process that is ubiquitously distributed from bacteria to humans. The process is essential for the enzyme-catalyzed removal of various types of base damage from the nuclear genome, typically those that result in significant distortion of the helical structure of DNA. This article discusses the overview and biology of NER.
