5'-incision of DNA by ERCC1-XPF in GG-NER (R-HSA-73939)

Species Homo sapiens


The cleavage of the damaged strand of DNA 5' to the site of damage occurs at the junction of single-stranded DNA and double-stranded DNA that is formed when the DNA duplex is unwound. The incision is carried out by ERCC1-XPF complex.
