Recent crystallographic studies of DNA-repair enzymes have provided the structural basis for the recognition of damaged DNA. The results imply that flipping out of the base is a common and crucial event in DNA repair. Two classes of repair enzymes that recognize distinct types of damage may exist. DNA-repair enzymes that share similar folds and DNA binding motifs have been proposed to belong to a superfamily.
