Abstract

It is generally believed that the mammalian nucleotide excision repair pathway removes DNA helix-distorting bulky DNA lesions, while small non-bulky lesions are repaired by base excision repair (BER). However, recent work demonstrates that the oxidativly generated guanine oxidation products, spiroimininodihydantoin (Sp), 5-guanidinohydantoin (Gh), and certain intrastrand cross-linked lesions, are good substrates of NER and BER pathways that compete with one another in human cell extracts. The oxidation of guanine by peroxynitrite is known to generate 5-guanidino-4-nitroimidazole (NIm) which is structurally similar to Gh, except that the 4-nitro group in NIm is replaced by a keto group in Gh. However, unlike Gh, NIm is an excellent substrate of BER, but not of NER. These and other related results are reviewed and discussed in this article.
