Substrate specificities of DNA glycosylases in vitro and in vivo

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)Researchpeer-review


DNA glycosylases are enzymes that remove damaged bases from DNA and initiate the process of base excision repair. In vitro, many of these enzymes can excise numerous chemically similar damaged bases, yet their ability to process DNA lesions in the cellular environment is likely narrower. This chapter covers biochemical and genetic evidence for biologically relevant substrates of human and bacterial DNA glycosylases
