Comments UvrA, UvrB, and UvrC form complexes that recognize DNA damage, and incise DNA 3' and 5' to damaged lesions in nucleotide excision repair. UvrA-C function according to the scheme below [PUB_0461]: UvrA2B complex recognizes DNA damage UvrA hydrolyzes ATP and dissociates from UvrB, leaving a DNA-UvrB complex UvrC complexes with UvrB, inducing a conformational change in UvrB which nicks the DNA 4 nt 3' to the damage UvrC nicks the DNA 7 nt 5' to the damage Kinetics Sancar and others report kinetic rates in the range kcat=0.08-0.50 1/min [PUB_0767]. Incision catalyzed by UvrABC at rate 0.39 fmol/min by 20 μmol solution containing 10 nM UvrA, 1000 nM UvrB, and 5 nM UvcR [PUB_0515].
