DNA repair: Clamping down on copy errors

Kad, Neil M., Van Houten, Bennett (2016) DNA repair: Clamping down on copy errors. Nature, 539 . pp. 498-499. ISSN 0028-0836. (doi:10.1038/nature20475) (KAR id:58753)


Repair enzymes must communicate across hundreds of nucleotides to undo errors made during DNA replication. Imaging reveals that the enzymes do this by forming a series of ring-like clamps that diffuse along the DNA.
