In transcription-coupled nucleotide excision repair (TC-NER), similar to global genome nucleotide excision repair (GG-NER), DNA polymerases delta or epsilon, or the Y family DNA polymerase kappa, fill in the single stranded gap that remains after dual incision. DNA ligases LIG1 or LIG3, the latter in complex with XRCC1, subsequently seal the single stranded nick by ligating the 3' end of the newly synthesized patch with the 5' end of incised DNA (Moser et al. 2007, Staresincic et al. 2009, Ogi et al. 2010).
