DNA mismatch repair.
DNA mismatch repair (MMR) is an evolutionarily conserved process that corrects mismatches generated during DNA replication and escape proofreading. MMR proteins also participate in many other DNAExpand

Multiple RNA polymerase conformations and GreA: control of the fidelity of transcription.
Pre-steady state kinetics of misincorporation were used to investigate the addition of single nucleotides to nascent RNA by Escherichia coli RNA polymerase during transcription elongation. TheExpand

Eukaryotic Mismatch Repair in Relation to DNA Replication.
Three processes act in series to accurately replicate the eukaryotic nuclear genome. The major replicative DNA polymerases strongly prevent mismatch formation, occasional mismatches that do form areExpand

Structural Model for Deoxycytidine Deamination Mechanisms of the HIV-1 Inactivation Enzyme APOBEC3G*♦
APOBEC3G (Apo3G) is a single-stranded DNA-dependent deoxycytidine deaminase, which, in the absence of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) viral infectivity factor, is encapsulated into HIVExpand

Interconvertible Lac Repressor–DNA Loops Revealed by Single-Molecule Experiments
At many promoters, transcription is regulated by simultaneous binding of a protein to multiple sites on DNA, but the structures and dynamics of such transcription factor-mediated DNA loops are poorlyExpand

Allosteric Binding of Nucleoside Triphosphates to RNA Polymerase Regulates Transcription Elongation
The regulation of transcription elongation and termination appears to be governed by the ability of RNA polymerase elongation complexes to adopt multiple conformational states; however, the factorsExpand

The single-nucleotide addition cycle in transcription: a biophysical and biochemical perspective.
This review has summarized the known features of the single-nucleotide addition reaction cycle in transcription. The reader will have noted that the information available is very incomplete, andExpand

Direct visualization of asymmetric adenine-nucleotide-induced conformational changes in MutL alpha.
MutL alpha, the heterodimeric eukaryotic MutL homolog, is required for DNA mismatch repair (MMR) in vivo. It has been suggested that conformational changes, modulated by adenine nucleotides, mediateExpand
