Hepatitis B virus X protein does not influence essential steps of nucleotide excision repair effected by human liver extracts.


The X protein (HBx) of hepatitis B virus (HBV) is thought to compromise TFIIH function during hepatocyte nucleotide excision repair (NER) to cause the accumulation of hepatocarcinogenic mutations. The TFIIH holoenzyme, including XPB and XPD helicases, is absolutely required for transcription coupled (TCR) as well as global genome (GGR) NER pathways. Using… (More)
