Inhibition of Rad3 DNA helicase activity by DNA adducts and abasic sites: implications for the role of a DNA helicase in damage-specific incision of DNA.


The yeast nucleotide excision repair gene RAD3 is absolutely required for damage-specific incision of DNA. Rad3 protein is a DNA helicase, and previous studies have shown that its catalytic activity is inhibited by ultraviolet (UV) radiation damage. This inhibition is observed when base damage is confined to the DNA strand on which Rad3 protein binds and… (More)
