Abstract

The past two years have seen a substantial increase in knowledge regarding the enzymology of DNA excision repair. These data support a growing body of information which suggests that transcribed nucleotide sequences are preferentially subject to excision repair. It is possible that these mechanisms, or related ones, are relevant to the molecular evolution of sequences that appear not to evolve according to models which do not take into account regional sequence differences in the extent of DNA repair.
