Error-prone DNA repair and translesion synthesis: focus on the replication fork.

Abstract

Dean Rupp and Paul Howard-Flanders showed that, following exposure to ultraviolet light, bacteria deficient in nucleotide excision repair synthesised DNA with minimal delay and in pieces roughly the size of the distances between pyrimidine dimmers. The discontinuities or gaps between these pieces were subsequently sealed. This led directly to the hypothesis… (More)
