UvrB is the damage recognition element of the highly conserved UvrABC pathway that functions in the removal of bulky DNA adducts. Pivotal to this is the formation of a damage detection complex that relies on the ability of UvrB to locate and sequester diverse lesions. Whilst structures of UvrB bound to DNA have recently been reported, none address the issue(More)
The UvrABC pathway is a ubiquitously occurring mechanism targeted towards the repair of bulky base damage. Key to this process is UvrB, a DNA-dependent limited helicase that acts as a lesion recognition element whilst part of a tracking complex involving UvrA, and as a DNA-binding platform required for the presentation of damage to UvrC for subsequent(More)
