Molecular docking and molecular dynamics study on the effect of ERCC1 deleterious polymorphisms in ERCC1-XPF heterodimer.

Excision repair cross complementation group 1 (ERCC1) is an important protein in the nucleotide excision repair (NER) pathway, which is responsible for removing DNA adducts induced by platinum based compounds. The heterodimer ERCC1-XPF is one of two endonucleases required for NER. Genetic variations or polymorphisms in ERCC1 gene alter DNA repair capacity… (More)
