Association between newly identified variant form of DNA polymerase beta (Δ 208-304) and ovarian cancer.

Abstract:

Base excision repair (BER) is a key pathway for maintaining genomic stability. A key enzyme in the BER pathway is DNA polymerase beta (polβ), which removes the deoxyribose phosphate group (dRP) and fills in the gap with a nucleotide after the DNA lesion is excised. It has been shown that more than thirty percent of breast, bladder, esophageal, colon, and gastric cancer samples studied so far have exhibited DNA polymerase beta mutation.

Sorting:

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).

Filtering:

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.
