Researchers reveal DNA repair mechanism

A new study adds to an emerging, radically new picture of how bacterial cells continually repair faulty sections of their DNA.

How TFIIH uses XPG to located damaged DNA

Nucleotide excision repair (NER) is a critical DNA repair pathway that plays a key role in maintaining transcription and genome integrity by removing bulky DNA lesions.

How does plant DNA avoid the ravages of UV radiation?

If the ultraviolet radiation from the sun damages human DNA to cause health problems, does UV radiation also damage plant DNA? The answer is yes, but because plants can't come in from the sun or slather on sunblock, they ...

Deciphering potent DNA toxin's secrets

One of the most potent toxins known acts by welding the two strands of the famous double helix together in a unique fashion which foils the standard repair mechanisms cells use to protect their DNA.
