A Uve1p-mediated mismatch repair pathway in Schizosaccharomyces pombe.

UV damage endonuclease (Uve1p) from Schizosaccharomyces pombe was initially described as a DNA repair enzyme specific for the repair of UV light-induced photoproducts and proposed as the initial step in an alternative excision repair pathway. Here we present biochemical and genetic evidence demonstrating that Uve1p is also a mismatch repair endonuclease… (More)
