Repair of deaminated base damage by Schizosaccharomyces pombe thymine DNA glycosylase.

Abstract

Thymine DNA glycosylases (TDG) in eukaryotic organisms are known for their double-stranded glycosylase activity on guanine/uracil (G/U) base pairs. Schizosaccharomyces pombe (Spo) TDG is a member of the MUG/TDG family that belongs to a uracil DNA glycosylase superfamily. This work investigates the DNA repair activity of Spo TDG on all four deaminated bases… (More)
