Base excision repair of radiation-induced DNA damage in mammalian cells

Abstract:

A specific feature of ionising radiation is the formation of clustered DNA damage, where two or more lesions form within one to two helical turns of the DNA induced by a single radiation track. The complexity of ionising radiation-induced DNA damage increases with increasing ionisation density and it has been shown that complex DNA damage has reduced efficiency of repairability. In mammalian cells, base excision repair (BER) is the predominant pathway for the repair of non-DSB clustered DN...
