Just Accepted Manuscript: Structure Activity Relationships Reveal Key Features of 8- Oxoguanine:Adenine Mismatch Detection by the MutY DNA Glycosylase

The recently accepted manuscript, Structure Activity Relationships Reveal Key Features of 8-Oxoguanine:Adenine Mismatch Detection by the MutY DNA Glycosylase, was accepted for publication in ACS Chemical Biology. MutY, remarkably, is able to specifically recognize and initiate repair of target OG:A mismatches from among a vast sea of natural DNA. To help reveal molecular features of OG that are critical for MutY recognition, this work explored the effects of systematic OG:A substrate…

Just Accepted Manuscript: S K-edge XAS Studies of the Effect of DNA Binding on the [Fe4S4] Site in EndoIII and MutY

7/18/2017 Check out the latest manuscript from the David Lab and collaborators: S K-edge XAS Studies of the Effect of DNA Binding on the [Fe4S4] Site in EndoIII and MutY, which was recently accepted for publication in JACS. In this work, the iron-sulfur clusters of DNA repair glycosylases Endonuclease III and MutY were examined using S K-edge X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy (XAS) in order to investigate DNA binding and solvation effects on Fe-S…
