Repair of UV lesions in nucleosomes--intrinsic properties and remodeling.

Abstract

Nucleotide excision repair and reversal of pyrimidine dimers by photolyase (photoreactivation) are two major pathways to remove UV-lesions from DNA. Here, it is discussed how lesions are recognized and removed when the DNA is condensed into nucleosomes. During the recent years it was shown that nucleosomes inhibit photolyase and excision repair in vitro and… (More)
