Base excision repair (BER) is the fundamental pathway responsible for the elimination of damaged DNA bases and repair of DNA single-strand breaks generated spontaneously or produced by DNA-damaging agents. Among the essential enzymes that are required to achieve the BER reaction is DNA polymerase beta (pol β), which has been regarded as a potential therapeutic target. More than 60 pol β-inhibitors have been identified so far; however, most of them are either not potent or not specific enough to become a drug. In this article we compile an essential knowledge base regarding the structures, the modes of inhibition and the activities of these pharmacologically interesting molecules.

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.
