The DNA sequence data of the somatic hypermutation (SHM) field published since 1984 has been critically reviewed. The analysis has revealed three strand biased mutation signatures. The first concerns the mutations generated at G:C base pairs in mice genetically deficient in uracil-DNA glycosylase and MSH2-MSH6-mediated mismatch repair. Such mice display the AID deaminase footprint and here C mutations exceed G mutations at least 1.5-fold. This supports earlier and more recent studies claiming… CONTINUE READING
