Welcome to the David Lab Website!



The David Lab at UC Davis utilizes numerous tools of chemical biology to explore the complex mechanistic details of DNA repair enzymes. DNA repair proteins such as MutY and NEIL, among the targets of research of the David Lab, help catalyze necessary repair of oxidative DNA damage, and are critical to maintaining genomic integrity in organisms living in the oxygen-rich environment of Earth. The David Lab is headed by Dr. Sheila S. David, who has led at the forefront of DNA repair research for over 25 years. The David Lab continues to push forward the world’s current understanding of DNA repair enzymes by leveraging our unique expertise in DNA repair enzymology while venturing into new areas and collaborating with scientists around the world.

2′-Fluorinated Hydantoins as Chemical Biology Tools for Base Excision Repair Glycosylases

Read more about how the distinct features of glycosylase processing of 2′-F-ribohydantoins and 2′-F-arabinohydantoins illustrate their utility to reveal structural insight into damage recognition and excision by NEIL and related glycosylases and provide opportunities for delineating the impact of lesion formation and repair in cells.

David Lab FYI Video

How to efficiently pour column fractions: Run a column <60 min.

Doing this will greatly increase your already-existing love of columns. And your productivity.

Get the most out of your flash column. It’s not called slow column chromatography.

Use this information at your own risk. This video is intended for graduate / professional level researchers. Be sure to follow your lab’s safety protocols.
