Longwave UVA is an independent class I carcinogen. A complete understanding of UVA-induced DNA damage and how this damage is processed in skin cells is therefore of utmost importance. A particular question that has remained contentious is whether UVA induces DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs), either directly or through processing of other types of DNA damage,(More)
Recombination repair plays an important role in the processing of DNA double-strand breaks (DSB) and DNA cross-links, and has been suggested to be mediated by the activation of the Fanconi anemia (FA)/BRCA pathway. Unlike DNA damage generated by ionizing radiation or DNA cross-linking, UV light-induced DNA damage is not commonly thought to require(More)
