Proofread and Repair Mechanisms von Georgina Cornwall, PhD

Über den Vortrag

Der Vortrag „Proofread and Repair Mechanisms“ von Georgina Cornwall, PhD ist Bestandteil des Kurses „Biologie für Mediziner*innen“.

Quiz zum Vortrag

  1. The 3'-5' exonuclease activity of DNA polymerase
  2. Photolyase activity
  3. Excision repair
  4. Resynthesis by DNA polymerase
  5. Removal and splicing by telomerase
  1. Mutagens cause errors in DNA.
  2. Ultraviolet (UV) light causes DNA damage as thymine residues form a dimer.
  3. Ionization radiation, UV light, reactive oxygen species, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, and transposons are known to cause DNA mutations.
  4. Mutagens help the enzyme photolyase chop off damaged nucleotide sequences in dsDNA.
  5. During DNA replication, the mutagen gets associated with DNA polymerase and helps recognize wrongly incorporated nitrogenous bases.
  1. It is a visible light–dependent DNA-repair enzyme specific for UV light–damaged DNA repair.
  2. It depends on the presence of mutagen molecules to repair damaged DNA.
  3. It works in association with transposons to repair damaged DNA.
  4. It creates thymine dimers in the DNA helix to stop the transposition of transposons in a gene.
  5. It gets activated in the presence of UV light and chops off the transposon DNA from the damaged gene.

Very helpful on understanding the basics of the repair mechanisms.
