What structural features determine repair enzyme specificity and mechanism in chemically modified DNA?


A crucial question in repair is how do enzymes recognize substrates. In surveying the relevant literature, it becomes evident that there are no rules which can be clearly applied. At this time it appears that uracil glycosylase is the only repair enzyme for which all the known substrates can be rationalized on the basis of chemical structure. When surveying… (More)
