Error-prone DNA polymerases: novel structures and the benefits of infidelity.

Cell (2001), Volume 107, Page 9


Studies on several recently discovered error-prone DNA polymerases reveal novel structures that may explain the low fidelity of this general class of enzymes, a number of which are involved in the replicative bypass (translesion synthesis) of base damage in DNA.



Structure and Structure/Function


The review is largely based on the crystal structure of Dpo4.

Using Polbase tables:


Tables may be sorted by clicking on any of the column titles. A second click reverses the sort order. <Ctrl> + click on the column titles to sort by more than one column (e.g. family then name).


It is also possible to filter the table by typing into the search box above the table. This will instantly hide lines from the table that do not contain your search text.
