Error-free and error-prone lesion bypass by human DNA polymerase kappa in vitro.


Error-free lesion bypass and error-prone lesion bypass are important cellular responses to DNA damage during replication, both of which require a DNA polymerase (Pol). To identify lesion bypass DNA polymerases, we have purified human Polkappa encoded by the DINB1 gene and examined its response to damaged DNA templates. Here, we show that human Polkappa is a… (More)
