    A major base lesion resulting from oxidative stress is 8-oxo-7,8-dihydro-2′-deoxyguanosine (8-oxoG) that has ambiguous coding potential. Error-free DNA synthesis involves 8-oxoG adopting an anti-conformation to base pair with cytosine whereas mutagenic bypass involves 8-oxoG adopting a...

    7,8-dihydro-8-oxoguanine (oxoG), the predominant lesion formed following oxidative damage of DNA by reactive oxygen species, is processed differently by replicative and bypass polymerases. Our kinetic primer extension studies demonstrate that the bypass polymerase Dpo4 preferentially inserts C...

    Background: Oxygen-free radicals formed during normal aerobic cellular metabolism attack bases in DNA and 7,8-dihydro- 8-oxoguanine (8-oxoG) is one of the major lesions formed. It is amongst the most mutagenic lesions in cells because of its dual coding potential, wherein 8-oxoG(syn) can pair...

    The article focuses on a study in which Olga Rechkoblit and colleagues examined the mechanisms by which Dpo4, a member of the Y-family polymerases, bypasses a DNA lesion. For their study they solved crystal structures of the polymerase at different stages of association with an oxoG-modified DNA...

    We have analysed the influence of neighbouring base sequences on the mutagenesis induced by 7,8-dihydro-8-oxoguanine (8-oxoG or Go), a typical oxidative lesion of DNA, using the yeast oligonucleotide transformation technique. Two oligonucleotides, oligo-CCGo and oligo-CGGo, each possessing a...

    Almost all DNA polymerases show a strong preference for incorporating the nucleotide that forms the correct Watson-Crick base pair with the template base. In addition, the catalytic efficiencies with which any given polymerase forms the four possible correct base pairs are roughly the same....

    Ultraviolet-induced DNA damage poses a lethal block to replication. To understand the structural basis for this, we determined crystal structures of a replicative DNA polymerase from bacteriophage T7 in complex with nucleotide substrates and a DNA template containing a cis-syn cyclobutane...
