The initiation and extent of translesion DNA synthesis (TLS) has to be tightly controlled in order to limit TLS-induced mutagenesis, caused by the low fidelity of TLS-participating DNA polymerases. Since monoubiquitination of PCNA at lysine residue K164 is a prerequisite for the assembly of TLS complexes on damaged DNA templates, PCNA deubiquitination is a key step in TLS termination that allows DNA polymerase switching from Y family DNA polymerases involved in TLS to replicative DNA polymerases delta and epsilon (Povlsen et al. 2012, Park et al. 2014).
