Sorry, no etymologies found.
"Bipyrimidine photoproducts rather than oxidative lesions are the main type of DNA damage involved in the genotoxic effect of solar ultraviolet radiation".
Multiple mechanisms have evolved to repair damaged DNA, including the versatile nucleotide excision repair (NER) which is capable of removing a variety of bulky helix-distorting lesions, such as UV-induced cyclobutane pyrimidine dimers (CPDs) and 6-4 photoproducts
It has been previously described that differentiated cells use specific strategies such as increase efficiency of the repair of active genes to ensure the maintenance of the transcriptionnally active domains in the presence of bulky adducts and photoproducts
