DNA Polymerase η (Eta)

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

DNA polymerase η is necessary for efficient repair/replication of ultraviolet (UV) radiation-induced DNA damage through translesion synthesis. Mutations in this gene result in xeroderma pigmentosum, variant type (XPV). Patients with this disease are highly susceptible to developing various types of skin cancers as a result of UV-induced DNA damage.
