Abstract

Structural analysis, biochemistry and model studies have provided new insights into the mechanism of action of photolyases. The light-driven electron and energy transfer events that lead to the photolyase-catalyzed repair of lethal, mutagenic and carcinogenic UV-light-induced DNA lesions have all been examined in the past few years.
