Human base excision repair creates a bias toward -1 frameshift mutations.


Frameshift mutations are particularly deleterious to protein function and play a prominent role in carcinogenesis. Most commonly these mutations involve the insertion or omission of a single nucleotide by a DNA polymerase that slips on a damaged or undamaged template. The mismatch DNA repair pathway can repair these nascent polymerase errors. However… (More)
