U/G and T/G mismatches commonly occur due to spontaneous deamination of cytosine and 5-methylcytosine in double-stranded DNA. This mutagenic effect is particularly strong for extreme thermophiles, since the spontaneous deamination reaction is much enhanced at high temperature. Previously, a U/G and T/G mismatch-specific glycosylase (Mth-MIG) was found on a(More)
Pyrimidine adducts in cellular DNA arise from modification of the pyrimidine 5,6-double bond by oxidation, reduction or hydration. The biological outcome includes increased mutation rate and potential lethality. A major DNA N:-glycosylase responsible for the excision of modified pyrimidine bases is the base excision repair (BER) glycosylase endonuclease(More)
