Efficiency and fidelity of human DNA polymerases λ and β during gap-filling DNA synthesis.


The base excision repair (BER) pathway coordinates the replacement of 1-10 nucleotides at sites of single-base lesions. This process generates DNA substrates with various gap sizes which can alter the catalytic efficiency and fidelity of a DNA polymerase during gap-filling DNA synthesis. Here, we quantitatively determined the substrate specificity and base… (More)
