A DNA binding protein from human placenta specific for ultraviolet damaged DNA.


A DNA-binding protein specific for ultraviolet irradiated DNA has been purified extensively from human placenta. The binding preparation is free of exonuclease, polymerase, endonuclease, and N-glycosidase activity. The binding activity is salt dependent and is specific for double-stranded irradiated DNA. DNA from which the pyrimidine dimers have been… (More)
