Incorrect nucleotide insertion at the active site of a G:A mismatch catalyzed by DNA polymerase beta.


Based on a recent ternary complex crystal structure of human DNA polymerase beta with a G:A mismatch in the active site, we carried out a theoretical investigation of the catalytic mechanism of incorrect nucleotide incorporation using molecular dynamics simulation, quantum mechanics, combined quantum mechanics, and molecular mechanics methods. A two-stage… (More)
