Enzymology of Excision-Repair in Bacteria: Overview

  • Lawrence Grossman
Part of the Basic Life Sciences book series


The incision step in the repair process is, perhaps, rate limiting, controlling the remainder of events leading to the ultimate removal of photoproducts and the reinsertion of nucleotides for the restoration of biological activity and strand continuity of irradiated DNA.
