DNA repair enzymes
DNA repair enzymes are enzymes that recognize and correct physical damage in DNA, caused by exposure to radiation, UV light or reactive oxygen species. The correction of DNA damage alleviates loss of genetic information, generation of double-strand breaks, and DNA crosslinkages. DNA repair enzymes recognize DNA damage or a nearby site, or enable repair.
